Hello Ryan! How would you describe your role at SoftWriters?
My role is pretty simple. If there’s any question/issue/problem that’s SQL Server or database related, it’s my job to make sure it gets answered/fixed. That responsibility runs the gamut from making sure all development of any database code is done well to standing up infrastructure for our testing team to QA our product to helping customers and answering questions on how they can get the most out of their SQL Server installation to giving presentations on best practices at conferences.
What is your favorite part of the job?
My favorite part of the job is educating others on SQL Server. When I see someone struggling with something that’s taking a lot of time, or is just plain difficult, and there’s some kind of functionality in SQL Server that I can show them that makes it immensely easier, and they look at me and say “oh man…that’s awesome…this way is so much better”, I get a very good feeling!
What is your favorite functionality in any of our products?
I really like FrameworkPOD. Giving customers the ability to track a Rx all the way from their doors to their customers’ doors is pretty cool.
What do you do for fun?
There’s not too much that sets me apart from most of the people at SoftWriters. I’m just a typical PA boy who raises his kids with his wife, fixes stuff on his house and car, and when I can find a little bit of time, go out to the woods to hunt in the fall/spring or golf very poorly in the summer.
