I have experience in designing and architecting large scale enterprise databases for both on-line transaction processing and analytical databases. I have extensive experience with SAP Sybase ASE and SAP Sybase IQ. I have been learning SAP HANA both from the ground up and from the use case perspective.
In Arizona we have a great climate but it gets pretty hot here with summer temperatures reaching 114 ºF which is around 45 ºC. The summer really is our winter time where we stay inside and avoid the weather and for us the summer drags on and we wonder if it will ever end.
A not yet played golf hole can be inspiring like a painter with a blank canvas ahead. The shot off the tee is like the first stroke of paint on a canvas it has direction and possibilities. Golf is a game of short connected cycles of determining options, analyzing risk and conditions, making a selection, visualizing the expected results and then hitting the shot. The results can vary widely and do not always turn out as expected but a well-played golf shot or hole can be inspiring.
I would like to blog it forward to the following people:
@douglas.hoover is a really good technical presales guy who loves getting complex product scenarios working he has some amazing talents and great technical insights to share.
@michael.breen I worked for Mike a few years ago and really appreciate his attitude and professionalism. He inspired me the first time I saw him hit the golf ball for a guy that does not get out to play much he has a lot of natural talent both on and off the course.
In keeping the BIF going, I am asking the following questions:

- What was your favorite job as a kid?
Jason Cao If one of your life goals is to climb Mount Kilimanjaro you really should connect with @Rex Geissler who lives in Colorado. Let see if Rex will BIF and provide some inspiration and details on his trip several years ago where he lived at high elevation for a couple of weeks which took extensive planning and preparation to complete his trip.
