Last Post – SQL Saturday MN 2018
When last I wrote, it was after I spoke at SQL Saturday in Minnesota. I co-presented a pre-con with Josh Owen. Prior to that was a few weeks of blogs on Azure and Azure Data Week. As Pragmatic Works moved to an Azure focused company, I, too, was learning much about Azure and what it takes to move workloads to the cloud.
The New Role – Director of Consulting
In October 2018, I was promoted to Director of Consulting at Pragmatic Works. Over the past 6 months or so, I have had the chance to lead and grow the consulting team at Pragmatic Works. This has been a great growth opportunity for me and my career. I am not perfect by any stretch, but the team is awesome! Pragmatic Works Consulting continues to grow and do awesome work.
The Beat Goes On …
As I look forward to the next few months, there are some great things happening at home. I get to see my youngest daughter graduate from high school, my second child and oldest son will be graduating from Liberty University next month, and then he will be getting married to his college sweetheart. It is will be a busy summer and into the fall at my house. But it will be great as well. Love watching the family grow up and move us all to the next stage all of life.
As Pragmatic Works continues to grow this year, I look forward to seeing new team members join our team and existing team members expand skills and capabilities. In the last two years, Pragmatic Works has transformed itself from a SQL Server based solution company focused on Microsoft Business Intelligence to an Azure solutions company specializing in bring customers to Azure and Azure Data Services. It is an exciting time in technology today and we are a part of that excitement.
Here’s to a great year!
