Welcome from Lynn Langit: Who I Am and What I Do Around Here

I wanted to first introduce myself to the community as an upcoming contributor for the BIEB (Because Its Everyone's Business) blog.   My name is Lynn Langit and I have been a Developer Evanglist in Southern Califonia for about 3 years.  Prior I ran my own .NET development company where I was lead architect for many types of Microsoft solutions.  I have also been a MCT (Microsoft Certified Trainer) for nearly 10 years.  I hold these Microsoft certifications - MCP, MCSE, MCDBA, MCSD, MCITP (SQL Admin/Dev/BI), MCT, MSF.


To get an understanding of what I do as developer evangelist at Microsoft are watch this interview I did on MSDN Channel.I have two other blogs, one for developers called SoCalDevGal, and most recently I've written a summer blog series on the new APIs in Windows 7, past topics including SQL Server Business Intelligence and SharePoint.  The other blog lists information about my bi-monthly live show called GeekSpeak. Past geekSpeak shows can be downloaded here.

I've been asked to contribute to this blog because of my production and training work around SQL Server in general, and around Business Intelligence (Data Warehousing and Data Mining) in particular.  I have taught these topics for 8 years,  I have production experience (prior to joining Microsoft) implementing SQL Server BI for many types of customers.  I have also written two books on SQL Server BI, the most recent of which is 'Smart Business Intelligence Solutions with SQL Server 2008' (MSPress / April 2009).  I also created a 33-part screencast series 'How do I...BI?' around using SQL Server Analysis Services.

In my free time, I like to keep my hand in production code.  To that end I have personally volunteered for over 4 years on an electronic medical records application named SmartCare.  This application is based on .NET, uses SQL Server storage and has been accepted as the national standard for medical records for Zambia.  SmartCare is currently being deployed in Zambia, and pilot work is being done in Ethiopia, South Africa and more.  For more information see http://www.opensmartcare.org
