Hi. I've avoided creating a blog for several years now. However with the launch of the first public CTP of SQL Server 2008 I thought this would be a good time to begin.

I've worked at Microsoft since 1993 and although I've had a variety of roles within the company they have always involved SQL Server. When I joined I supported SQL Server 4.2 on OS/2. How things have changed! These days I work in the the ISV team within Microsoft UK. This coming year my principal objective will be to work with ISV's who are developing solutions on SQL Server 2008 (aka Katmai).
