Hi!… I’m Peter Whyte.

Hello and welcome to my website, which is a place for me to store all my notes as I blog away as a software enthusiast.

My area of interest very much revolves around Database Administration (DBA), so there will be a lot of RDMS related posts on here, particularly SQL Server.

It’s been an amazing journey working away at this blog which I started in January 2017. Like anything, practise makes perfect. My hope is to continue to improve my writing and all the other skills required to run a blog. It’s been a long and fun journey so far… and I feel like I’m just getting started!

I hope you enjoy, and feel free to comment on posts or write me a line any time. I’d apprecaite any critique or feedback you may have.
