About Me

I’m Wes Brown,

I am CTO at SQLWatchmen,

Over the past decade or so I’ve been focused on enterprise systems and SQL Server in particular.

That isn’t to say that’s all I’ve ever done just the thing that has brought me to this point in my professional career.

I’ve also had the privilege to work with some outstanding companies and people along the way including Quest Software (litespeed product manager and SQL Server domain expert) and GoldenGate Software (SQL Server domain expert and professional services) that you may know as a database professional. Other companies like The SCOOTER Store (yes if they prequalify you, and you are turned down by Medicaid they will give you your scooter or power wheelchair) where I got to hone my SQL skills to a fine point.

Through all that I’m also support the SQL Server community mostly on a local level here in Austin, TX PASS chapter CACTUSS http://www.cactuss.org  I also started the San Antonio PASS chapter SALSSA http://www.salssa.com which is now in the capable hands of Jim Steiner.

I’m always finding out things about technology and SQL Server that make me go “WOW! I never knew that.” As I find them I’ll post them up there is a chance you may not remember or didn’t know it ether. These little mysteries are what drive my passion to learn more and share with others.
