Having frequently presented on various topics since presenting for Microsoft at all UK venues for the launch of Visual Studio 6 in 1998, Hue's current focus is on leveraging the database's enterprise capabilities to implement truly robust and resilient systems that retain excellent performance even in the most challenging of environments.
