Experiencing his first infection with computing fever in 1978, Rob Vieira knew right away that this was something “really cool.” In 1980 he began immersing himself in the computing world more fully — splitting time between building and repairing computer kits, and programming in Basic as well as Z80 and 6502 assembly. In 1983, he began studies for a degree in Computer Information Systems, but found the professional mainframe environment too rigid for his tastes, and dropped out in 1985 to pursue other interests. Later that year, he caught the “PC bug” and began the long road of programming in database languages from dBase to SQL Server. Rob completed a degree in Business Administration in 1990, and since has typically worked in roles that allow him to combine his knowledge of business and computing. Beyond his Bachelor’s degree, he has been certified as a Certified Management Accountant as well as Microsoft Certified as a Solutions Developer (MCSD), Trainer (MCT), and Database Administrator (MCDBA). Rob is currently the DBA Team Lead for the Stockamp practice of The Huron Consulting Group in Portland, Oregon, and makes occasional speaking appearances on database development, business intelligence, and other topics. He resides with his youngest daughter Adrianna (aka Addy, aka Trillian, aka “T”) in Vancouver, WA.
