Rob Vieira

http://www.sage4startups.com

As a kid getting the rare opportunity to touch a terminal back in a day where computers took up rooms or even buildings, Rob knew this was something very cool. And so began the lifelong relationship between Rob and technology. Rob would write his first book in 1998, and discovered he had hit a nerve in the industry, igniting a new genre of books oriented around database development in a space where books had just focused on administration. Since then, Rob has sold over 250,000 books on data related topics, and went on to design systems and lead teams building products that often handled regulated and other sensitive information. In recent years, he's focused on building high retention teams based on ethical leadership.
