Hello, my name’s Jacob.

Quick introduction, I started my career in the IT industry as an accidental SQL Server Database Administrator back in ‘11. Fast forward to today, I’m a Senior Data Platform Engineer based in Melbourne, Australia.

During that time I’ve been blessed and fortunate enough to have worked with a lot of smart people who have helped me learn so much along the way. I’ve also managed to touch a mixture of database platforms such as SQL Server, MongoDB, MySQL, DynamoDB and RDS Postgresql.

With this blog, I hope to document my learnings and experiences regularly. Firstly, this will help me reinforce what I’m learning, as well as remember what work I’ve done and tech I’ve used over time. Secondly, by sharing online, my posts might help someone, as the internet has done for me many, many times.

If you’d like to connect, you can find me on LinkedIn or feel free to flick me an email.
