In 2019, I got around 10,547 daily page views, meaning that this year, I’ll get over 3.85 million page views. That’s a 22% traffic increase since 2018.
Overall, in these six years of blogging, I got over 8.8 million page views and 4.5 million visitors. Cool, right?
At the beginning of 2019, I got a great idea. Why not build a tool to check the Java Persistence and Hibernate mappings and configurations automatically?
Instead of having to manually inspect every configuration and mapping that can impact application performance, nowadays you can use Hypersistence Optimizer and save a lot of money that you’d otherwise have to spend on finding out why your enterprise application is working slow.
Hypersistence Optimizer has already been helping many developers getting a better understanding of their application performance issues, and allowed their projects to run faster.
While giving my High-Performance Java Persistence training, I realized that many application developers could benefit from learning more about SQL, so, in 2019, I built the SQL Master Class training which aims to teach attendees how to to get the most out of the latest SQL features introduced in Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL or MySQL.
Exactly two years ago, I launched the hibernate-types project, which provides a great variety of custom Hibernate Types to handle JSON, ARRAY or database-specific column types like Inet, Range or HStore.
Over the past two years, the hibernate-types project has been adopted by many projects, and now it reached over 180,000 monthly downloads.
At the beginning of 2019, I also decided to change my blog layout. The previous UI was based on a free WordPress theme that lacked support for full-width pages or a fixed menu. The current theme is way better, and now the home page, along with the book, courses, training, and consulting pages, use a much better cleaner design.
All in all, thank you for reading my blog and stay tuned for more awesome articles!
