My perfect day is spend by tuning SQLPools & solving problems with the data platform. My main focus is SQL Server Core and Azure Data Solutions, but I have also done various BI & ETL projects. I get my kicks out of Column Store indexes & tuning queries.
There is an old saying – “Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish and you feed them for a lifetime.”. As much as I enjoy tuning systems, I find far more satisfaction from helping others learn how to do what I do. I would not be where I am in my career or life without all the help that I have received along the way, so paying it forward is very important to me!
