SQL Swimmer

I started out as a software developer back in 1996 in Denver, CO, doing Client/Server development in PowerBuilder. I am now a Data Architect, living in High Point, NC and I love what I do. I’ve worked with all versions of SQL Server since the infamous split from the Sybase code (a.k.a. version 4.21a). I’ve worn all the hats that come with dealing with SQL Server, developer to data architect and everything in between. Twitter handle: @SQLSwimmer

Triad Developers Conference – My Debut

I did it!  I did my first “real world” presentation this morning at the Triad Developers Conference in Winston-Salem.  What I mean by “real world” is not a PASS audience.  These were total strangers off the street that I didn’t know, well, there were some familiar faces and even a… Read more
