Jim Tilson has a degree in computer science and mathematics from the University of Tennessee and has been developing software with PL/SQL over 10 years. Nicknamed “the Optimizer” by his colleagues, he is never happier than when he finds the right way to tweak a query to take response time from minutes to milliseconds. He currently works full-time as a software developer for a healthcare provider staffing company based in Knoxville, TN. In his spare time he does freelance software development as the owner of BrendanSoft LLC and does his best to keep up with his wife and two very busy children.
