About Contagious Curiosity

   I am a DE (Developer Evangelist) for the MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network) team.  My job is to give talks to developers throughout Southern California, to listen to their feedback, and to communicate that feedback back to Redmond.  My interests and specialities are as follows:

  • SQL Azure
  • Microsoft SharePoint Server
  • SQL Server (everything!)
  • BI (Business Intelligence) using SSAS, SSRS and SSIS (that's Analysis Services, Reporting Services and Integration Services)
  • Teaching Kids Programming

I am a "language geek" with a degree in linguistics and have a hobby of learning foreign languages.  Semantic modeling - both visual and verbal - fascinates me.  I love LINQ, SDML, ORM and the like...I mean, really, how many people have you ever met that actually used English Query in SQL Server 7.0?
