Doug Lane, Chief of Podiatry

Doug Lane

(Doug was part of our pioneering SQL Critical Care® team from 2013-2016 and built the most awesome SQL Server training videos the community has ever seen. We miss him and would recommend him highly. We leave former team members’ pages up to honor their awesome contributions.)

I want to work with you to make sure your databases are always on their feet and running fast. I love helping people get past their most agonizing problems with SQL Server, and showing them what amazing things SQL Server can do. I come from a business intelligence background, so I also speak ETL, SSRS, C#, MDX, and Jive.

To get me excited in a workplace-appropriate manner, come talk to me about:

  • T-SQL windowing functions
  • Delivering technical presentations
  • SQL Server query tuning
  • Secretly powerful SQL Server Reporting Services properties
  • Video editing
  • Hercule Poirot (Suchet or Finney, but not Ustinov. NO USTINOV.)

When I’m not shooting videos in stunning 70mm Panavision (TM) for Brent Ozar Unlimited, I’m having lightsaber duels with my two marvelous children. You may also spot me in my natural habitat: Denver SQL Server User Group meetings, SQL Saturdays, or the PASS Summit.

For a good time, or quite possibly a great time, contact me.
