Happy 10th birthday, SQLite

Birthday Cake

Ten years ago, on 29th May 2000, D. Richard Hipp made the first check-in of the SQLite code.

The SQLite development team, led by DRH, has enhanced SQLite’s capabilities whilst preserving the compact size of the library, improving reliability and optimising performance. They made 7114 check-ins over ten years – an average of 2.1 check-ins per day.

SQLite is a hugely successful project. It is probably the most widely deployed SQL database engine in the world and an essential part of the Symbian persistentdata package.

I’d like to thank Richard and his development team for SQLite and congratulate them on this important milestone.

Happy Birthday SQLite!
