Seeing the light

Posted by rjssqlservernotes on March 27, 2012

After nearly two decades as an application engineer focused on the Microsoft stack I have come to recognize the freedom provided by open source software.  My domain of expertise lies in the business, data-access layers, and database development which, until recently, for me meant the .Net framework and SQL Server.  My professional life changed after I discovered PHP and MySQL during a project.

Open source alternatives can provide robust solutions for most clients without licensing fees; this was a eureka moment for me.  In reflecting on the many projects to which I had contributed over the years I concluded that a very small number of them could not have been realized with open source solutions.  I have not abandoned the Microsoft technologies instead I have augmented my ability to provide solutions to clients; however, I find great pleasure in demonstrating solutions that are based solely on open source technology.
