Three years of blogging
Imagine having a tool that can automatically detect if you are using JPA and Hibernate properly. Hypersistence Optimizer is that tool!
It’s been three years since I started this blog, and every year I happen to write a report. If you are curious, check out the previous reports:
In these three years, I got over 1.200.000 page views and the last month was the first one to break the 70.000 views threshold.
On 1st of October 2015, I started working on my own. On 1st of December 2015, I joined the Hibernate team as a Developer Advocate. This blog has played a major role in getting this job, so I’m grateful I have started it in the first place.
In the last 12 months, I started participating to three conferences:
I really enjoyed being on stage and meeting a lot of great people.
This year, I finished High-Performance Java Persistence. The whole book is very much inspired by the research I underwent on this blog. I would have never started writing it if I didn’t see that my readers are interested in my articles about Hibernate.
Looking forward to the next year of blogging. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
