Steve Rezhener is a database professional most enthusiastic about Microsoft BI stack. He started his IT career trying to outsmart Excel using VBA, moved to VB 6.0, VB.NET, C# and suddenly got addicted to SQL Server 2005 and related tools. His lunch menu for 10+ years consisted of SSIS & SSRS with some occasional SSAS for breakfast. Steve is super excited about the innovation baked into AWS, Azure, Power BI, and SQL Server 2017. Steve is a holder of relics such as: DBA Microsoft certifications on SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008. He is a co-organizer of SQL Saturday in Los Angeles (#SQLSatLA), co-leader of LA Data Platform SQL Server User Group (previously known as #SQLMalibu), as well as an avid SQL Saturday speaker. When he isn’t dealing with data, he fixes a kitchen, plays an XBOX and enjoys his kids.
