I am a SQL Server programmer with over 30 years experience doing, speaking, and writing about data modeling, SQL Server coding and internals, and being involved in the SQL Server community.
Recently I joined Redgate as the editor of the Simple Talk website after 20 plus years working for a non-profit where he was the lead SQL Server architect and programmer. Big change, but very exciting too!
I have written and contributed to several books on database design with SQL Server (Including a new edition out in 2021 that includes SQL Server 2019 features). I have also contributed to quite a few other books on SQL Server topics including a book on Dynamic Management Views with Tim Ford (@SQLAgentMan) that has had more legs than an army of centipedes!.
I also try to get around and do presentations on Database Design whenever I can at any data platform events I can drive to from Cleveland, TN. And I might even go farther than that now!
I upload all of my slides to a folder that I link to on the presentations tab. If you are interested in having me speak to your group, check out my calendar below... (and I am always available for parties if you need someone to lead naptime.)
Feel free to drop me a line anytime at email@example.com if you have any comments or just want to tell me that you have used the site. You may know me as firstname.lastname@example.org, but I am going to change my email address some day, just like MIcrosoft will be removing timestamp from SQL Server. I have had the Hotmail account for over 20 years now and it is how I am known to a "few people" by that address, so who knows. If you want my full information, check out the About page.
