I’m Wes Brown, currently serving as Sr. Database Administrator for Nextgen Healthcare and as happy as I’ve ever been in my professional career.
Over the past decade or so I’ve been focused on enterprise systems and SQL Server in particular.
That isn’t to say that’s all I’ve ever done just the thing that has brought me to this point in my professional career.
I’ve also had the privilege to work with some outstanding companies and people along the way including Quest Software (litespeed product manager and SQL Server domain expert) and GoldenGate Software (SQL Server domain expert and professional services) that you may know as a database professional. Other companies like The SCOOTER Store (yes if they prequalify you, and you are turned down by Medicaid they will give you your scooter or power wheelchair) where I got to hone my SQL skills to a fine point.
Through all that I’m also active in the SQL Server community mostly on a local level running the Austin, TX PASS chapter CACTUSS http://www.cactuss.org for the last 5 years I think, time has a way of playing tricks on your memory. I also started the San Antonio PASS chapter SALSSA http://www.salssa.com which is now in the capable hands of Jim Steiner.
