Professionally, James has made mastering all the ins and outs of the behemoth that is SQL Server his primary career niche. English is a second language, right after T-SQL. His recent work has been focused almost entirely on large enterprise-level MS SQL Server design and development projects. James also received a Bachelor of Science degree from Vanderbilt University, which especially qualifies him for technical writing projects.

    • Performed all the duties of a senior SQL Server DBA and SQL programmer for the length of my tenure as the lone database pro. The project was a highly customizable and diverse web-based media asset management application (MAM system) proprietary to Disney.
    • Developed a responsive search engine that considered millions of rows of data across various tables and applied real-time permission data against up to 300 business rules.
    • Architected the design to allow search to split across several threads so that the engine could quickly return the most popular results in a requester's department while simultaneously churning additional results in the background.
    • Implemented a peer-to-peer SQL Server network to consume and share asset metadata across departments.
    • Developed an engine, using Ghostscript and VB objects, to parse PDF and Word documents for terms and developed a codebase to do advanced string searches like terms "near" one another and term count > n.
