Story
Tagline
a short man with the long list of names
Introduction
Meddling computers from 1985. Worked in many roles including developer, Project manager, IT manager and CTO but found passion in working with databases. Worked with many databases including dbase, clipper, FoxBase, FoxPro, Access, Oracle, Sybase and of course MSSQL Server. Experimenting things with Cache, MongoDB, Redis and Hadoop.  My favourite is SQL server since I am playing with it since 1997 (SQL Server 6.0)
