I am Jason Carter.  I am a husband and father and reside with my family in Tampa Florida.  I was brought up in a large family in a small town in rural Opp, Alabama.  After a 6 year stint in the United States Marine Corp, I found my way to Tampa with a friend.

Technology History

I have been programming one language or another for almost 19 years now.  Starting with Q-Basic in the early days on my 8086 and I have generally stuck to my roots in the basic family of languages.  Through the years I have progressed through the Microsoft family of development languages to include VB6, VB.NET, C#.

Over my years as a developer I have always took an interest in databases, which is where I am currently spending most of my time.   While I have always worn many hats in past roles, an accidental DBA being one of the most prevalent, I took my data career into its first full-time DBA position in early 2013.

When I’m not working with SQL and the Microsoft family of products,  I also dabble in projects base in PHP and Python.
