I am Jonathan Kehayias, one of Kandio’s go-to guys for any topic SQL Server.

After working as a SQL Server and .NET developer for four years, I transitioned to the role of Database Administrator for a Fortune 500 company and then a Level 1 Trauma Center where downtimes meant huge financial losses and/or losses of life. Using my knowledge of the internals of SQL Server and application development allowed me to highly available, fault tolerant business solutions for data management.

I have been one of the top answerer’s of questions on Microsoft’s MSDN forums, and was one of the youngest professionals in the world to achieve the Microsoft Certified Masters certification for SQL Server. I also helped author new exam questions for the SQL Server certification exams and the Microsoft Certified Masters qualification, and taught two rotations of the Microsoft Certified Masters courses at Microsoft. I know how to evaluate a candidate’s understanding of SQL Server at multiple levels and can write questions that accurately assess a candidate’s skillset.
