My current mission is to guide developers out of the stone age.

“We turn the coding jungle into an interactive map.”

How the idea was born

I was one of those developers in a large corporation who are running around undocumented code like headless chickens. I routinely analyzed thousands of lines of SQL code and a month later would have to do the ​*exact*​ same part from scratch.

We were a team of 30 developers and every single day each of us spent 2 hours on SQL code analysis. Hideous routine for us and a really expensive task for the company.

I realized it is the biggest pain point in every company with a data warehouse—half a million companies globally. 

So… I quit my job and started to code SQLdep.


  • Many banks have already started using SQLdep—their data warehouse teams love us, and we are happy to make their lives easier
  • We have already saved 5 man-years worth of work for our clients
  • We are a Czech tech-savvy startup ready to rock the US market


From idea to reality

Our cloud based solution helps developers to quickly understand dependencies and issues in their code. This is achieved by reverse engineering SQL code to create a visual representation of data flows.

We are the first cloud based solution to provide such an extensive and reliable SQL code analysis. Think of it as a map. In minutes we can document and visualize millions of lines of SQL code. Without our service this code would take months to process manually.
