I am an experienced SQL Server and DB2 DBA. I have worked in IT for 20 years with the first 8 years as a programmer, and the last 12 years as a DBA. I currently work as a DBA for a major Omaha financial institution. I have also taught classes at Iowa Western Community College.
As a DBA my primary job duties are to support the company’s databases. Keep them running and fix the problems when they are not. I also review the designs of new databases and assist with the new database development.
My areas of expertise are Databases, SQL, Performance Tuning, and Database Design. The primary database I support is SQL Server, with my secondary database being DB2. I do have some experience with Oracle, but this is mostly PL/SQL. I am also experienced with Windows, Microsoft Office with Word, Excel, and Access.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Science from Minnesota State - Mankato, and also attended the University of Minnesota.
I have been working with databases for about 20 years. I am usually working with the more advanced database systems like SQL Server and DB2. The general database concepts are the same with Tables, Columns, Data Types, and SQL. Also the database design concepts are the same. I do assist people at work who setup Access databases and then get into a bind. Usually the problems they run into are things like not understanding how to design tables, what data types to use, how to relate tables, and how to write SQL. I am well versed with all of these and can help anyone using Microsoft Access.
I work with databases on a daily basis. I am well versed in all general database concepts. If this is a general database class then I well suited to help you.
I am not an Oracle expert so I won't be help with advanced Oracle topics. More than likely you are using Oracle to work with PL/SQL. Writing SQL on Oracle databases is something I am good at. There are only subtle differences with SQL between Oracle and other databases like SQL Server and DB2.
