I'm excited to be blogging with several of my SQL Server comrades. My name is Erin Welker and SQL Server is my passion - I've been working with the product since version 1.11! In the last few years I have been sharing my lessons learned through presenting and writing. I've been honored to present at SQL PASS for the last 3 years and at Tech Ed 2007. I was part of the Project REAL team and authored a whitepaper on partitioning as a result. I also wrote 2 whitepapers on large relational data warehouses on SQL Server, one on managing and one on performance. I'm currently working on my second article for SQL Server Magazine, which should appear in the March 2008 issue.
My focus is on Business Intelligence and performance, and that's what I intend to blog about most. On my current engagement, I'm working with PerformancePoint Planning, so you may see that slip in here and there.
I look forward to sharing information on this site and hope to learn from other bloggers and readers, as well.
I hope you enjoy!
