A blog about SQL Server, SSIS, C# and whatever else I happen to be dealing with in my professional life.

About me

I'm just a Bill. Yes I'm only a Bill And I'm sitting here on Capitol Hill...

I'm a "technology enthusiast" as a coworker tagged me in SharePoint. I've been programming computers in some fashion since I bought my first book when I was 7 years old at our school book fair, "Basic Fun: Computer Games, Puzzles, and Problems Children Can Write" ISBN 0380806061. I was 7 or 8 at the time and still own it. My friends were buying Go dog Go and I bought a computer book. Fortunately for me, that decision has lead to an enjoyable life behind a keyboard.

I love to solve problems of all shapes and sizes but I find I'm most effective with a SQL Server database in my pocket and SSIS in my hand. I am a member of SQL PASS, a SQL Server MVP,the organizer of the Kansas City SQL Saturday and have traveled the country bringing the good news of SQL Server to the masses.


I am a firm believer in the power of SQL Server community.
