Description: Alex Stuart is a DBA from Manchester, UK, who levelled up from bartender to application support to accidental DBA to full-time Default Blame Accepter. Primarily a production DBA fond of performance tuning and upgrades, but known to get hands dirty with whatever tool fits the job - Powershell, C#, ASP.NET, breaker bars. In summer he rides fast bikes on as many racetracks as he can fit in. In winter he reads and plays guitar and videogames. Ok, sometimes in summer he also does all of those things.
