Time for a new challenge!

I’m excited to announce that on the 1st of April (not a joke J), I will be joining Microsoft as a Premier Field Engineer SQL Server. After 4,5 amazing years working for Kohera, it was time for a new challenge.
When I started my job as a consultant I knew only a little bit about SQL Server. I started working at a bank in Brussels for 1,5 years where I learned a lot about the daily DBA tasks.
After this “internal” job I really became a consultant because I started working on different shorter projects like consolidations and migrations, SQL audits, performance tunings, teaching customers and many more…
I would like to give a special thanks to Frederik Vandeputte and Koen Jacobs (both managing partners of Kohera) for the chances and opportunities that they gave me. It helped me a lot in improving my SQL skills. Thanks guys for the support and for believing in me!
Another thank you goes to my colleagues. I didn’t see them a lot but when we met, it was always fun to hear their SQL stories.

I’m really looking forward to start working for Microsoft! I’ve waited a long time for this, believe me J.
A PFE delivers Proactive (workshops, health checks, risk assessments) and Reactive (on-site support, troubleshooting) engagements and is a highly skilled engineer with deep technical expertise in a given technology.

More information on Premier Field Role details can be found here or watch the Microsoft Services – Premier Field Engineer Role video.

I still hope to do presentations and events for the SQL Community which I really like doing!

Well… I’ll see you around Europe!

Pieter
