Dave works as Chief Architect for .NET Development at Ridgian Limited, a privately owned software house based in Central Birmingham. Ridgian are a Microsoft Certified Partner and specialize in Business Intelligence Solutions and Custom Software Solutions.
Dave is very active in the Microsoft community speaking at DeveloperDeveloperDeveloper conferences, and at numerous User Group meetings around the country on such topics as SQL XML, SQL 2005 Security, Regular Expressions and his favorite technology XSLT and XPATH. He has recently published articles on SQL Server 2005 Security in International Developer Magazine and on Vista and Office 2007in the Microsoft Beta Newsletters.
Dave tested the 70-431Prectice test and found the features such as the quiz, study notes and articles extremely useful. He remarked, “I would say that uCertify offer a great product here. It could be enhanced in a couple of minor ways, but I think they have got the tone, environment and subject matter of the SQL Server 70-431 exam pretty much down pat. I can only say this from experience of 7 previous Microsoft Exams and not from this particular one, but all those other 7 had a similar approach, so I feel pretty confident in giving this a big thumbs up, especially the Notes and the Pause!”
