Most developers use SQL like 25 years ago. A lot has changed since then. Modern SQL makes every developer's life easier.

I feel outdated after this talk. ?

I'm very sad that postgresql doesn't have support for system versioning yet.

Excellent talk.

Excellent overview of the evolution of SQL standard with great insights of good and bad practices (offset forbidden..)

Nothing to add - Markus brought more to the game than I expected and was very funny

Well structured talk, and there was a real moment of magic, with explanation on oppened slide in a matter of seconds with an example.

I stopped using offset after this talk, mostly out of the fear of my hand getting chopped off.

The speaker is clear, eloquent and extremely funny to listen to. I was afraid to blink not to miss a second of the talk.
Only the highest prases for this talk.

Brilliant talk! I've never met a person with deeper knowledge about SQL. The parts about *FIRST n ROWS ONLY* and *OFFSET* killed me. Adding dry humor was total masterclass. Way to go Markus!

A definite highlight of the conference, an eye-opening and entertaining talk unlike any other. Great work!

Definitely the highlight of the conference. Excellent delivery, great structure, amazing content. Thanks!

I haven't worked with SQL based databases for the past 10 years, but still, this one really got me.
Perfect delivery as well as great contents.

I think this was my favourite talk of the event. It was eye opening to find out how much has SQL evolved over years, and it looks like I definitely need to brush up my SQL skills. Excellent material, good pacing, a few good jokes sprinkled around, and the time flew by very quickly, although I was standing the whole time (the room was completely packed). Great job!

Very interesting talk fully packed with information on what developers should stop using and what to replace it with when writing SQL.

Perhaps a bit too much information to take in all at once, but nevertheless delivered in a very dynamic, interesting and paced manner!

TLDR: If you don't want to have your hands chopped off, you shouldn't be using OFFSET!
Also, there's a way to do event sourcing-like incremental logging of data on the db level, which seems very interesting.
