About Jay's Blog

I am a Premier Field Engineer (PFE) working with Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) that develop solutions using Microsoft Technologies.  This affords me the opportunity to travel to many different places to work with customers that are doing a lot of interesting things with Microsoft Software.  When onsite, I am working with customers to help resolve performance issues or to find better ways to implement solutions using Microsoft products.  I also deliver onsite classes or customized training for development customers.  Most of my time is spent with software development, SQL Server, and Windows Azure.  I've been in the IT Industry for 17 years with most of that focused on database support and development.   This blog draws on my experiences "in the field" as a Microsoft PFE.
