Magnus Ahlkvist has worked with (or against) SQL Server for 20 years. Started as a Microsoft Access developer and still thinks Microsoft Access is the second best product ever release by Microsoft. After years as an employed database developer, architect and DBA, working in government institutions and the insurance industry, he is now jumping between freelance consulting and teaching future database admins and database developers.

Magnus is one of the leaders of SQL Server Usergroup Sweden, member of city council, football trainer and scout leader.
