About Bob


I’m Bob Pusateri, a Solutions Architect at Heraflux Technologies. Prior to this, I spent a decade as a DBA and application developer in the financial analysis, electronic trading, and healthcare fields.

And if you’re curious, no, I’ve never seen the movie.

What I do for fun

I do lots of work with SQL Server! I love what I do, so work really is fun for me. Outside of the office you’ll probably find me out and about with my trusty Nikon, working around the house, or just spending quality time with my family. I’m a founding member of the Chicago SQL Association, one of the organizers of SQL Saturday Chicago, and I enjoy speaking at user group meetings and events whenever I get the chance.

What I’m certified in

I currently hold the following certifications:

Microsoft Certified Master (MCM): SQL Server (I’m also the youngest person to ever earn this certification)
Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Data Platform
Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Cloud Platform and Infrastructure
Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Data Management and Analytics

Epic Clarity 2015 Administrator

What I studied

I have a MS in Computer Science with a concentration in database systems from DePaul University. Before that, I earned my BS in Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I spent the best five years of my life. (I-L-L!)
