We offer consulting and technical expertise for web and database application development and database administration, deployment and troubleshooting. Our experience covers C++ development for server products, C# development of database applications and web services and anything concerning Microsoft’s SQL Server, and specially SQL Server 2005.
I am an independent consultant offering SQL Server development and administration services. I’ve been working professionally with databases since 1994. For more than 6 years I’ve been a developer with Microsoft, member of the SQL Server team in Redmond, WA.
I have hands-on real-life experience in troubleshooting some of the most difficult problems database deployments encounters. My troubleshooting approach is a methodological one rooted in experience and a deep understanding of how SQL Server works. I’ve investigated and diagnosed poorly planned hardware, badly designed applications, improperly configured servers. I have improved application response times by two and even three orders of magnitude in situations considered desperate.
I am an experienced database application architect and developer. With a deep understanding of almost every SQL Server feature and technology, I know how to deploy it and use it correctly. After all, I’ve been working with SQL Server 2005 since 2001 and some of the features you are using today were designed, coded or tested by myself.
I am an active member of the SQL Server community. I am one of the moderators and amongst the main contributors to some of the SQL Server forums on MSDN. I am the author of a very popular blog that covers SQL Server topics with a focus on Service Broker.
Besides my SQL Server expertise I am also an accomplished C++ developer having worked in some of the most demanding, non-trivial, development environments. I am also an experienced C# developer, with a very solid understanding of all application and web design topics.
