My name is Carlos Robles originally from Guatemala, but living in Denver, Colorado since 2017.
Iím a Microsoft Data Platform MVP and multi-platform Database Administrator (SQL Server, Azure SQL DB, Oracle and MySQL) with more than 10 years of experience in the database administration field. I have had the opportunity to work with different platforms (on-premises, virtual, cloud) for large scale US based companies in the healthcare, food, energy, technology, insurance and banking industries.
Currently, my main focus is SQL Server with multiple certifications under my belt (MCP, MCTS, MCSA, MCSE) from SQL Server 2008 version 2016 including Azure SQL DB. I have developed a few open source tools like MAXDOP Calculator and the Wait Stats widget for Azure Data Studio.
I was the Leader of Guatemala SQL Server local group and am a mentor, speaker at a couple SQL Saturdayís and local SQL groups events.
If you donít find me talking about SQL Server or geek stuff on twitter, it is very likely you will see me online playing videos games with my wife and daughter or hiking some of the mountains around Denver.
