Drawn By the BI Sirens

Pragmatic Sirens

Patrick Is the lead Singer

Sirens. Their sweet songs lured sailors to their deaths in tales of yore. Alas, I too have been drawn by the sweet, sweet siren call of the business intelligence world and the fine folks at PragmaticWorks. I’m very proud to announce that I am officially going to work for PragmaticWorks!

This is a very exciting opportunity for me as I’ve been dying to get more exposure to the BI stack over the years and there is no better place to learn than from the pros at Pragmatic. I’ve likened learning SSIS from Brian Knight to getting Bible lessons straight from Jesus. Okay, might be a slight exaggeration but they both wear sandals 24/7 so you’ve got to give me credit for that connection.

I’d like to thank everyone who helped me out during my job search these last few weeks. The community’s response when I first announced I was looking as well as all the leads and support you guys gave was overwhelmingly awesome and makes me again realize how special and awesome this community is. I’d also like to thank Brian and Adam for taking a chance on bright-eyed, chicken-loving DBA and believing that one day I’ll be able to write an SISS package that actually turns green.

Finally I’d like to apologize to Patrick for including his image in the siren picture. I love Patrick to death and I couldn’t think of a better third person to add in the picture than him! Plus if you’ve heard him speak before you know he’s the lead singer in that group.
