Trying out DuckDB

Mark Litwintschik gives DuckDB a go:

DuckDB is primarily the work of Mark Raasveldt and Hannes Mühleisen. It’s made up of a million lines of C++ and runs as a stand-alone binary. Development is very active with the commit count on its GitHub repo doubling nearly every year since it began in 2018. DuckDB uses PostgreSQL’s SQL parser, Google’s RE2 regular expression engine and SQLite’s shell.
