Meet the Author

Robert Vieira Experiencing his first bout with computing in 1978, Robert Vieira knew right away that this was something "really cool". In 1980 he began immersing himself into the computing world more fully – splitting time between building and repairing computer kits, and programming in BASIC as well as Z80 and 6502 assembly languages. In 1983, he began studies for a degree in Computer Information Systems, but found the professional mainframe environment too rigid for his tastes, dropping out in 1985 to pursue other interests. Later that year, he caught the "PC bug" and began the long road of programming in database languages from dBase to SQL Server. Rob completed a degree in Business Administration in 1990, and has since typically worked in roles that allow him to combine his knowledge of business and computing. Beyond his Bachelor's degree, he has been certified as a Certified Management Accountant as well as Microsoft Certified as a Solutions Developer (MCSD), Trainer (MCT), and Database Administrator (MCDBA).
Rob is currently the Principal Consultant for Database and Storage Technologies with the Technology and Innovation Group at STEP Technology in Portland, Oregon – a position that offers the high-end consulting and team support he craves.
He resides with his wife Nancy, elder daughter Ashley, and new addition Adrianna, in Vancouver, WA.
