Looking Back at Postgres [article]

Joseph M. Hellerstein
2019 arXiv   pre-print
But Stonebraker was never a coder, and he stayed out of the way of his development team.  ...  The Postgres codebase was the work of a team of brilliant students and the occasional university "staff programmers" who had little more experience (and only slightly more compensation) than the students  ...  Some trace the demise of Informix to this campaign, although Informix's financial shenanigans (and subsequent federal indictment of its then-CEO) were certainly more problematic.  ...
