Stijn Wynants

Stijn is an independent Data Platform Consultant & DataMinds (Belgian Data Platform User Group) core member. He is also one of the organisers of the local user group sessions & the yearly event called DataMinds Connect (SQL Server Days). He spents his days tuning SQL Servers & solving problems with the data platform. He is primarily a DBA consultant, but has also done various BI & ETL projects. He gets his kicks out of Columnstore indexes & tuning queries but shivers at the sight of an SSAS cube.

When Stijn is not working with SQL Server, you can probably find him enjoying the local cuisine & local beers or enjoying time with his wife and his dog.
