The Business Behind 5 Years of Data Geekery and 10 Years of jOOQ

Hi, I’m Lukas. And I’m starting a blog about the business behind jOOQ

Almost 5 years ago, on August 15, 2013, Data Geekery was registered in the trade register of Zurich, Switzerland. What a great ride it has been since then. And what an exciting ride will come in the near future!

You may or may not already know me as a person, the developer behind jOOQ, e.g. from conferences where I had a few talks. After 5 years, I still run this company alone, with no employees (although, I have plans to change that), and I’d like to share 1–2 insights into how that worked out, and why I made many of the decisions I did — including the occasional mistakes.


For the occasion… Read the full blog post here.


After playing around with Medium, I’ve decided not to publish this blog series here on a third party platform. While Medium does seem to be a cool platform to write, I do not agree with how they get in between me and the reader, in various ways. This is why I have edited this post and removed most of it, moving it to my own wordpress blog (see link above).

One of the blog posts that I will publish in this series will discuss precisely this topic, so stay tuned.
