2002 The idea of a database

Roman

The Idea of a Database

Roman, the founder of CodeCheck, was still a student when he was confronted with the complexity of food and cosmetic product labels. Asking himself how he could find suitable products more easily, he looked at the product barcode with fresh eyes. What if you would use them as well for rating products? He began to build a database in which people could track ingredients, nutritional values, and product manufacturers.
