Profile

As a freelance specialist and troubleshooter with experience in the area of Microsoft SQL Server since 1999, I have worked with some 200 SQL Server environments. Also because of the large number of courses I delivered I have a very thorough knowledge of the features and internals of this product. Graduated in Applied Logic relational modelling is very natural to me. Database design, performance tuning, T-SQL programming and database administration are subjects that I still very much like, whether in the context of software development, troubleshooting, advice or training - classroom or on the job.
