I started working on SQL Server in 1996 on Version 6.5.
In 1998, I learned SQL Server trial by fire as the only Database Developer for a huge data driven web based application.
I passed the MCDBA and MCSE 2000 in 2001.
I have been working heavily with SQL Server 2005 since the first CTP.
I work fulltime for an international company based in the United States. I work out of the Atlanta office.
In addition to Microsoft SQL Server, my knowledge base includes, VMWare ESX Server, Windows Server 2003, Small Business Server 2003, Sharepoint Portal, Microsoft Access.
I have begun dabbling with ASP.NET 2.0 C# and VB.Net. I'm playing heavily with the new Visual Studio TS for DB Professionals.
I believe Expert Exchange is a great place to transfer knowledge. I think its a cool thing to build up points, but believe it is more important to teach proper design and technique vs. just answering a question for the points.
