My name is Torsten Strauß, a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for Data Platform from Germany. At the turn of the millennium, I discovered my passion for Microsoft SQL Server. I am specialized in performance tuning, troubleshooting, T-SQL programming and Microsoft Integration Services. I work closely with Sarpedon Quality Lab®, a company founded by the only German Microsoft Certified Solutions Master for the Microsoft Data Platform. You can meet me at international and national user groups and conferences where I regularly share my knowledge and experience with the Data Platform community.
