David Levy is a developer turned DBA. He began his career in 2000 after graduation from Northern Illinois University with a degree in Operations Management and Information Systems with an Emphasis in Information Systems. After several years of increasingly complex development work David moved into a support role that allowed him to indulge his interest in quick fix engineering. In this role he had the opportunity to tune a critical business query reducing the run time from 6 minutes to a few seconds. At this point it was decided that David should move to the database team to work on other poorly performing queries as well as to head off any future issues. In this new role David worked with the development teams of the company to tune the existing workloads while developing coding standards and a code review process. During this time he developed the skills and experience to allow him to move into his current role as a Premier Field Engineer at Microsoft. In David’s current role he works with Microsoft customers to ensure they have the best possible experience with SQL Server through a mix of proactive education and mentoring and reactive assistance with system issues.
