Hi! Thank you for visiting my website! Let me quickly tell you about this site.

Top two reasons for building this site:

  • Want to have an online presence.
  • Want to share whatever I know (Microsoft technologies, especially SQL Server), with you all!

I launched this site in 1997 as a personal website, and it has come a long way since then. Lately, I've been getting a great response from my visitors, and that forced me to track traffic, and see what's going on! To my surprise, traffic is growing day by day, and this site is receiving more than 500,000 page views per month.

Now a brief introduction of myself. My name is Narayana Vyas Kondreddi (Just call me 'Vyas') and I am 30. I come from a small village called Veeravasaram, which is located in the West Godavari district of the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. I'm happily married to Priya. I come from a wonderful, loving and caring family. Visit 'My picture album' page to meet my family members.

I am an SQL Server database administrator (DBA) , currently working for
Barclays Capital, one of the biggest investment banks in the UK. Prior to this, I was with Aditi, Microsoft, Compaq, and, the world's biggest online grocer.

Coming to my hobbies and interests, I like writing code. I like spending time online. I love to travel and want to visit all the beautiful places on earth. I'm interested in photography and love to capture the nature's beauty in my small camera! I enjoy driving, let it be a bike or a car. I like listening to soft, melodious music, as well as these latest noisy albums. Last, but not the least, I am a great Cricket fan, but suffering from football fever after moving to UK :-) I also enjoy watching Formula 1 car racing every fortnight, during the season.

This is it for now. Hope you enjoy this site. I'll appreciate your comments and suggestions. Feel free to drop a line or Sign my guestbook!
Thank you
