Hello and Welcome!

Thanks for checking me out.  This is my professional/technical blog, and the central hub for connecting with me and engaging in tech/career conversations, which I am always open to, and enjoy having.  I’m focused on the MS Data Platform & SQL Server in particular.

As of June 2019, I’ve finished moving my off-topic/personal content over to natej.dev — go check it out, if that sort of thing sounds interesting!

Here are some blog highlights:

A blurb about me:

I’m a DBA & DBD (Database Developer) & BI-Dev (lately) who appreciates interesting work, working with technology, playing games (of the card, board, and electronic varieties), spending time with family & friends, eating good food, and drinking good beer.  Not necessarily in that order.

I enjoy discussing ideas about data, and helping others with what I’ve learned.  I also love learning from others!  You can reach out to me via my contact page, Twitter (main/alt), Facebook, or LinkedIn.  I’m on StackExchange and GitHub, and I’m trying to make good use of Gist for in-blog code samples.

A quick disclaimer:

Images in posts are hardly ever mine, and I mostly use them for humor.  If you find one in violation of copyright, please let me know and I’ll be happy to remove it!

Another disclaimer:

Opinions are mine, and do not reflect those of my employers nor colleagues.  If you disagree, I’d love to hear from you!  Healthy discussion and constructive criticism are always welcome.

Now, go forth and be well!
