I am a Senior SQL Server Architect with over 15 years experience in architecture, business intelligence, development, and performance tuning of SQL Server. Currently, I do a lot of data visualization work. I ❤ Power BI.
Since 2010 I have spoken at over 100 events around the U.S., Canada, Europe, and the Caribbean. Highlights include PASS Summit, Teched North America, TechEd Europe, SQLRally, several different online events, and probably over 50 SQL Saturday events (I have lost count at this point).
I write a few things every now and then, you can find my Hey Scripting Guys posts here: blogs.technet.microsoft.com/heyscriptingguy/tag/aaron-nelson/
My SQL Server Central articles here: sqlservercentral.com/Authors/Articles/Aaron_Nelson/
My MSSQLTips articles here: mssqltips.com/sqlserverauthor/76/aaron-nelson/
- I help various teams in the Data Platform group at Microsoft write better PowerShell for SQL Server code. Here are some highlights of my involvement with them:

- SSRS Team blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/sqlrsteamblog/2016/11/07/community-contributions-to-the-powershell-scripts-for-reporting-services

- Just a few more things.
- I started out thinking I was just going to blog about SQL Server and then I downloaded SQLPSX. The rest as they say…
- I’m not an accidental DBA. I’m a Second Generation DBA.
- If you’re trying to get ahold of me just give me a shout on twitter or figure out my ultra-secret email address that is my first name at this domain dotcom.
I hold certifications for MCITP: Business Intelligence Developer, Database Administrator, Database Developer; as well as MCTS: Windows Server Virtualization, Configuration (meaning Hyper-V).
