1. DuckDB is awesome
  2. It’s 2024 and I still find many folks have no idea it exists, or why it’s so awesome, or that it has magical powers.
  3. DuckDB can replace other single tools, or even whole data toolchains.
  4. Other tooling (R, Python, etc.) can have a significant number of dependenceis that come along for the ride and need to be maintained. DuckDB has only extensions to worry about, and they’re small and easy to ensure are available even in environments where you cannot connect to the internet from a given system.
