At one shop we had code walk-throughs. They specifically not termed "code-walkons,"
Several programmers --- no managers --- would schedule a conference to review and comment on code.
These walk-throughs were a good idea --- the coder wasn't attacked by one person; others were (probably) more tactful than yours truly.
I learned a lot of respect for my co-workers, not to mention new ways of doing things.

I searched for PostgreSQL and didn't find it.
I respectfully suggest that you replace your planned database engine with PostgreSQL.
    1. it doesn't use litigaton as part of its profit picture;
    2. is is about as fast as the selected database when specified with similar options;
    3. it doesn't lose data as much as the selected database by a wide margin.
    4. it is tied to the academic community.
Just a few thoughts.
