Delayed project news

In November 2011, Maciej Sobczak announced his departure from the project and called for new SOCI project leader needed. Almost year later, I decided to step forward and become a new SOCI project manager. Maciej still occasionally helps in the project, he may be available to provide commercial support to SOCI users through his company Inspirel.

I would like to take this opportunity I’m writing about SOCI and thank Maciej for SOCI - quite a revolutionary C++ idea he came up with decade ago; for long-standing C++ mentorship while working on the project together or discussing C++ on pl.comp.lang.c in the great days of Usenet; finally, for showing me the real value of lean thinking in hacking.

I was born in country which undergoes revolution every four years and very first decisions new leaders is to make things over. Trying to not to neglect the rich legacy of my fathers, I planned my first revolution for the project. That was to migrate the development infrastructure to GitHub and create an organization there. The motion was successfully completed month later.

All SOCI development and code slinging activities take place at The release downloads and mailing lists remain hosted at and the website with documentation at
