About Deborah Melkin

I went to college wanting nothing to do with math and science. So naturally, this English and History major found her way to databases.

20191019_130355-V2I’ve been working at software companies over 20 years (ack!), helping programmers with all aspects of database design, queries, performance, and deployment. In 2016, I started this blog. Soon after that, I began speaking at SQL Saturdays and at user group meetings.

I am a board member of the New England SQL Server User group (NESQL). I was named an IDERA ACE Class of 2020. I also won Speaker Idol at PASS Summit in 2019. In November 2020, I was awarded Microsoft MVP for the Data Platform.

When I’m not working with databases, I’m usually found doing something musical.

Thanks for joining me on this journey!
