Introduction

Sql2Go offers software development and consulting services for MS SQL Server. It is owned and operated by me, Megan Brooks, located in Sacramento, California. Sql2Go seeks to provide specific, specialized SQL Server database development and administration services to clients, as needed, when needed. Billing is hourly (W-9/1099 required for larger projects).

I have been developing for and administering SQL Server since 1998, beginning with SQL Server 6.5. I worked as a full-time corporate or academic application developer or systems programmer for more than 40 years and have been programming and consulting as a software developer since 1970.

My recent work has been with SQL Server 2016 and 2012 (SSRS, DB Engine, SSIS), developing and optimizing for and administering large databases. While I am retired from full-time permanent employment, I continue to offer consulting services.

When not consulting, I have been developing a genealogical database application using SQL Server 2016. It is currently at a proof-of-concept stage running on a local SQL Server, but my ultimate goal is to move it to Azure as an SaaS application.


Availability (Updated 5/18/17):

I am currently available for real time online database consulting as well as for extended projects. Consulting fees are hourly, billed in quarter-hour increments. Depending on project scope, common interest, and availability, I also accept some smaller projects on a volunteer basis.

As of May, 2017 I currently have a short-term, part-time engagement which has priority at times when work is scheduled. I expect to complete this project by the end of June, 2017. I also have several days out-of-office days scheduled in June, when I will be traveling.

I no longer accept full-time, permanent position offers. At this stage in my life I wish to focus on the primary goal of Sql2Go which is providing just the services needed, when they are needed.

I am also available to answer SQL Server questions and for small jobs to members of Experts Exchange, provided that I not am engaged in other work. I accept live consultations and gigs, as well as community questions, when I am available.

For more information, contact Megan.


Why “Sql2Go?”

My SQL Server blog & personal website have been located at far2go.net for many years. It is  just a catchy name that is easy to remember, although if you think about it enough, it may seem to have implications ranging from “much work still to be done” to “unlimited opportunity.” But then that might be thinking about it a little too much – at the time I just needed to come up with a domain name, quickly.

“Sql2Go” comes from changing “far” to “sql.” It is still catchy, but the point is that I can offer database development and administration services to order, as you need them, at lower cost than hiring a full-time developer/DBA.
