Officially out now: The TypeDB 3.0 Roadmap

Documentation overview

TypeDB & TypeQL are in the process of being rewritten in Rust. There will be significant refinement to the language, and minor breaks in backwards compatibility. Learn more about the changes from our 3.0 Roadmap. The biggest change to TypeDB 3.0 will be our storage data structure and architecture that significantly boosts performance. We’re aiming to release 3.0 in the summer this year, along with preliminary benchmarks of TypeDB.

The future of databases

The fast advances of modern, high-level declarative programming models in parallel with the rise of distributed and multithreaded systems make it harder and harder to continue piling layers of abstractions on the relational model. TypeDB tackles this issue by re-thinking database systems from first principles, building on a new declarative language paradigm, a polymorphic data model, a powerful logic engine, and a new query execution model.

Complexity will only increase in the years ahead, essentially requiring new declarative programming models focused on intent, the user, and business logic.

Getting started

Deploy your TypeDB server, connect to it from a client or driver, and learn how to start building applications with TypeDB.

Set up a TypeDB Cloud or Core deployment, clients, and language drivers.

Connect to your TypeDB deployment and run your first queries.

Explore the key ingredients of TypeDB with easy and intuitive examples.

TypeDB Academy

TypeDB Academy is an end-to-end learning experience for TypeDB and TypeQL. Through the lens of a sample bookstore database, you’ll learn how to read data, write data, and build schemas while taking advantage of TypeDB’s unique features as a modern, type-safe, and highly expressive database.

Take your first steps with TypeDB and its query language TypeQL.

Gain an in-depth understanding of how TypeDB works as a database.

Learn advanced techniques for getting the most out of TypeDB.

TypeDB Manual

Practice-oriented guides on using TypeDB, including the TypeDB Studio and TypeDB Console manuals.

How to set up TypeDB Studio, connect to your deployments, run queries, control transactions, modify your schema, and visualize your results.
