Microsoft Certified Master - SQL Server 2008

Uwe Ricken

Erzhausen, Hesse


I'm working with IT-systems since 1991 and especially with SQL Server
since version 6.0. I started with development of database applications in 1998 with a professional CRM-System based on Microsoft products (Microsoft
Office and SQL Server). Since 2008 I'm focused completely on SQL Server and I am working in 3rd level support for banks, insurances and world wide acting

If I'm not working with SQL Server I'm writing about my daily experiences with SQL Server in my blog. The blog is in german language only because I recognized all "deep dive" blogs are in english language only. With my blog I try to impart the deep technical benefits of SQL Server to german speaking audiences.

My hobbies are diving, driving my motorcycle and italian sport cars from
Maranello. One dream is a tour on the road 66 across the USA.

Since May 2013 i am one of 7 Microsoft Certified Master: SQL Server 2008 in Germany.
