Dallas DBAs began as a simple URL that was only used for email for many years. In 2016, this website was created and we started blogging about things of interest to DBAs in the SQL Server space. Mostly beginner articles – either beginner DBAs or veterans beginning to learn a new topic. Effective September 28, 2017, the State of Texas has recognized us formally as Dallas DBAs LLC.
President/Lead DBA – Kevin
A SQL Server DBA/Developer since 1998. Ran 3NF Consulting for 7 years and took some time off to go full time with Verizon. Laid off in 2015 and made the move back to consulting. When not making SQL Server work better, I am an active cyclist, husband, father and grandfather. Kevin’s specialty is cleaning up SQL Server messes, typically those where there has never been a DBA, or one has left and a suitable replacement has not been found. Kevin is currently working through the Azure Infrastructure and Database certification process to become one of the few freelance Azure Architects in the DFW area.
Intern – Derek
Derek is a college student working towards a Database certification and working part time for Dallas DBAs. His studies thus far include Database Theory, Security, Networking, Java and Database Fundamentals. Derek has already passed his first MS exam – Microsoft Office Specialist – Access.
