Biography
[b][u]Who Is RealSQLGuy?[/u][/b] My real name is Tracy McKibben. I’ve been working with database products for over 20 years, starting with FoxBase running on Xenix. Over the years, I’ve worked with all flavors of FoxPro, some Clipper and dBase, and starting somewhere around 1995, SQL Server. I’ve even dabbled with Oracle, though I’ve tried to block out all memories of that experience. At present, I’m the Senior SQL Server DBA and the DBA Team Supervisor for Pearson VUE. All opinions expressed on this site are my own and do not reflect the opinions of Pearson VUE. [b][u]Why The Name RealSQLGuy?[/u][/b] Back around the time that we were all coming to terms with the fact that we’d survived the Y2K disaster, I was working as the lone DBA for a small company. I was part of a small IT group, and my desk was directly outside the office door of the IT manager. One day a visitor dropped by the manager’s office, concerned about some sort of application problem that they were having. The problem involved a SQL Server database (one that I was already supporting). Not realizing that the IT group was supporting the aforementioned application, or that the IT group included a real, live DBA, the visitor wanted to bring in a consultant to help with the problem. When the IT manager pointed out to the visitor that there was a DBA sitting right around the corner, the visitor turned to me and said “Oh, you’re a real SQL guy?” The name stuck, and was the source of some great fun within the IT group for a long time after that.
