Welcome to the new Gekko blog. I (= Thomas Thomsen) am the editor of the Gekko project, and the intention here is to write on subjects related to Gekko — that is, news about Gekko, timeseries data management, modeling, software architecture, parsing & compiling, domain specific languages (DSL), speed optimizations, etc. etc.

There is a lot to write about, since Gekko has been actively developed since 2008, and in the meantime I’ve learnt a lot about what works and what does not work in software development.

Right now, I’ve got quite a few posts planned, but when this initial surge of posts is over, I plan to post on at least a monthly basis, or perhaps more. Don’t expect to get daily news here, but on the other hand the blog is intented to keep a steady pulse over the coming years.
