A few days ago yet another Vertabelo user expected an immediate production update for a small bug fix. It led me to think about how often software was released due to bug fixing from the historical point of view. I started in the 80s when personal computers became very popular and, as consequence, a software market for customers was born.

For the first time we showed Vertabelo live to a wider audience.It was a pleasure to meet all the Java developers and talk about their projects, technologies and tools they use. We had a strong team at the conference and it allowed us to talk anyone interested - more than one hundred talks. See some of us in action on the photo below.
We are launching a new product on a market, so let me tell you the short story about how and why Vertabelo was born. e-point and I personally have more than fifteen years of experience in building business applications. All of them use relational databases as a storage for their data. Most of those applications are rather big - think abouthundreds of tablesin a database and hundreds of screens in a UI. We had to design databases in
