Who is Alex Evans
Currently I work in Business Service Automation Field as Technical Consultant for HP, based in Vienna, Austria. With a strong background in Web Development I have enjoyed building Robust, customizable, efficient online applications. Although it seems my work follows me long after I leave the office, it's not all I do, Infact my biggest achievement in recent years is successfull transformation into fatherhood, seems not all beautiful things are built from code. Also I couldn't leave England without finding a suitable football team here in Vienna to burn off that modern day stress.

Having worked closely with a wide variety of RDBMS I find my personal preference to mysql, to many of the big companies are tied into using the Wrong tools for the job. Having said that understanding the sql standards and what customizations are required for different vendors, weather it be SQL server, Oracle, DB2 or mySQL, having the right background goes a long way.
