Started as developer, I felt in love with Data and Database, in all their forms. Still have a passion for development (C# and Python). My focus has been databases and performance tuning, focusing both on transactional and analytical workloads. For 5 years I helped developers to get the best out of SQL Server, then I moved to Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing for 10 years. Then I moved to IoT and Big Data for a while. Now back to database space, as Program Manager for Azure SQL DB Hyperscale, helping developers to re-discover SQL, using any platform and any OS.
