HB - Wright, Pat 2017-10-26-138

My name is Pat Wright and I started in the DB world back in 1999 with Sybase Sql Anywhere 5.5. Like Many DBA’s there was no one else to work on the database server so I volunteered. We soon migrated that into MS Sql server 7.0 then worked our way up to Sql 2000.

Fast forward 20+ years.  I’ve now branched into Big data with Hive, Hadoop, Elastic Search.  I’ve been focused on PostgreSQL for the last 5 years.  I’ve spent long nights working on AWS, Mysql, Linux and Windows.  I’ve failed many a DW and ETL process and I’ve built a few that have worked as well.  I love to build communities, volunteer and present on Database topics.  If you are interested in working with me in the future you can find all my details on my consulting page.

Outside of my technical skills, I’ve been the Co-Founder and President of Utah Geek Events for the last 12 years. I’ve organized or assisted with over 30 technical conferences of various sizes.  I am currently serving as Sponsor Coordinator for the PG US conferences.  Sponsor Coordinator for Anime Banzai and Organizer for Big Mountain Data and Dev conference.  If you have any questions related to organizing events I am happy to discuss.
