Kendra LittleMy goal is for you to understand your SQL Server’s behavior– and learn how to change it. Whether you have 1 month of experience or 10 years, whether you are a developer, manager, or DBA, I work hard to be your beacon towards the solution: making SQL Server understandable and bringing everyone towards the solution together.

I’ve been working with SQL Server for more than ten years. I’ve performance-tuned databases ranging from 1 gigabyte to 80 terabytes. I’m also a Microsoft Certified Master in SQL Server 2008, which is a fancy certification that I’m geeky and obsessive.

What gets me up in the morning:

  • SQL Server Index and Query Tuning
  • High Availability and Scale-Out Architecture
  • SQL Server on Solid State Drives (SSDs)
  • Enterprise Monitoring
  • Change Management
  • Dinosaurs

Read my resume for the nitty-gritty.

When I’m not wandering around the sprawling Brent Ozar Unlimited campus, you’ll find me at user group meetings in Portland, Oregon. I also love to draw.

Contact me if you have a data problem and you just need to hug it out—and, obviously, fix the problem.

Oh, and here is some of my work that might be especially useful:

And here is a picture of a dinosaur:
