Regular Columnist: Steve Jones

SQLServerCentral.com profile

My background is I have been working with computers since I was about 12. My first "career" job in this industry was with network administration where I became the local DBA by default. I have also spent lots of time administering Netware and NT networks, developing software, managing smaller IT groups, making lots of coffee, ordering pizza for late nights, etc., etc. For those of you interested (or really bored), you can check out my resume.
