I have been designing and developing security features for Database and Server products in standalone and also for distributed environments. I’ve been working on a wide stack of technologies ranging from Backend Database Servers (like SQL Engine) to front end, management and distributed audit and key management. I bring experience in shipping projects deployed as Standalone Servers, Hardware Appliances and Cloud Services.
Most recently I’ve developed various distributed auditing and security related features for SQL Azure that are deployed across hundreds of machines across dozens of clusters.
I’ve mostly worked in C++ on our database engine and contributed in C# in several other projects. I’ve some exposure to Java and Jscript.
