My first name is "Sheeri", pronounced like "cheery" but with an "sh" sound in front. It's a Hebrew word meaning "My Song".
In college, I majored in Neuroscience. A D- in Introductory Neuroscience, as I had 3 semesters left, made me switch majors to Computer Science. The rest is history -- I loved computers, and particularly database engines.
Hi all, I've been in the Boston area since 1996. I learned databases on PostgreSQL, and earned a Master's degree in Computer Science specializing in databases in 2001. I currently work as a MySQL DBA.
It is really a joy to have the meeting of minds that we do at the Boston MySQL Meetup.
