Walter Heck (IRC: walterheck) has been working in IT since he came out of college in 2001. First as a Delphi-programmer, always working on database driven applications. He gained a lot of experience with different database backends like Oracle and MS SQL Server.

When he wanted to switch gears back in 2007 he decided that MySQL was going to be his new focal point. Ever since, he has been studying MySQL, while using it wherever possible.When Walter is not on his computer working, you might find him in your local neighbourhood store, as he is traveling around the world and loves to visit new, simple places to watch people live their lives and learn about their cultures.

Walter has presented at various FOSS conferences around the world, like FrOSCon 2009 in Germany and Foss.my 2009 in Malaysia.
