This is an article that featured current students enrolled at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Yes... KillaDBA is in grad school.... this is why I have not been as active lately. I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! Only 3 more classes to go... Whew! This has been a journey, however, I have managed to create several IT related songs and I plan to release them soon. I'm looking forward to writing more songs for different organizations and also performing the songs... once Covid-19 has subsided :-P. Please click on my image below to see and read the article. Thanks!
This happen over 2 years ago now but I wanted to share because it was soooo cool to me. I love the fact that BCD has embraced my talent and chose to highlight me in their Focus magazine!
I was asked to create a song for the Microsoft Business Application Summit 2019! I was also asked to include 30 Biz Apps in the song.
“Hug a DBA!” I know it’s a team effort but please don’t forget about the DBA when it comes to your data protection, storage, reports, etc... We do a lot! LOL!
I wanted to make a song that talks about the importance of Women in IT. I couldn't make this song without mentioning how influential my mother was in my decision to make I.T. my career choice.
This song is a parody of Drake's song: God's Plan. I've been migrating a lot of databases for various reasons lately... which inspired me to do this one.
Ok... WOW! Where have I been? With work, being a dad/husband and now school... it's been difficult to keep this blog going.... but.... I'm back! This song is about Microsoft's relation database management system named SQL Server 2017. You can now experience the benefits of running SQL Server on an open source system as well as in the cloud (Azure), Docker containers or Windows. Check it out!
I think Big Data is interesting because our world is now data driven and we have the technology to hold so much data these days.... it will only get better.
My lyrics talk about the Big Data concepts and what we know about it at this point in time.
I took a few snippets from my visit and performances at Microsoft in Redmond, Seattle during the SQL Saturday event.:
I was signed up to present at my local PASS chapter meeting (http://atlantamdf.com/) on January 8th 2018. The only problem with this is that my alma mater, The University of Georgia, was playing in the College Football National Championship game…. And I had tickets! Needless to say, I didn’t present… but I did create a video that was played at the meeting. Here is the video that was played that is a walk-through demo of me installing SQL Server 2017 on Red Hat Linux 7.4 on a virtual box VM:
Double wow! I attended PASS Summit in Seattle, Washington this past fall and I had a great experience! I would suggest that anyone passionate about data should definitely attend this event. PASS Summit is the world’s largest conference in the world for SQL Server professionals. Find out more about SQL Server here:
I met so many cool people with the same interests in data and I also got to perform in front of my fellow PASS attendees!
You can check out my PASS summit recap in this video below! I only had 5 seconds to explain each picture but I believe I still did a good job in describing my experience:
