Hug a DBA
“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!
Women in IT
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.
SQL Server 2017 Song
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!
Big Data Video
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.:
SQL Server on Linux!
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:
PASS Summit 2017
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:
Never in the history of humans have we ever seen
a day like this when data is abundant to infinity
We’ve always backed up data like on walls with hieroglyphics
But now we have a thousand ways to reclaim what goes missing
Computers –man- Technology, servers, in the cloud lies
Millions I mean Billions perhaps trillions of these hard drives.
We live in times where we can finally process,
All this data is a mess - Without tools so we can use it
Mass data - that can tell us what is what –
Insight is what we need - and Big Data is what’s up
The who, the what, the when -when we gotta know the why.
Big data in the answer -because Data Doesn’t Lie, <ha ha!>
We have abilities to structure, make it clean
then decide how-to extract - Now I’m talking ‘bout the V’s
Volume-Variety-Velocity - that’s 3
But we can’t forget Veracity or Variability – Big Data.
So now were living in a time – where he have a lot of data
But it doesn’t mean a hoot – if we don’t know how to leverage.
Our society will benefit – analysis - efficiency
I am a data scientist – it’s my way of philanthropy.
Money we could save, give away or just make
Is but one way that Big Data could assist – so many ways
Shout out Apache software – Yes I’m talking ‘bout Hadoop
I’m using Polybase from Microsoft to get the scoop
The news, the clues, from any storage system
So never ever purge – we have clever algorithms
that make it so that different platforms talk to each other
The different data sets - and complex architecture.
So analyze the trends - we are all made of atoms
On a sub-atomic level - just like atoms we have patterns
Big data is the future where the data tells the future
Mass data into structure making decisions to deliver – Big Data
Killa DBA song medley

My Performance at Microsoft
Wow! SQL Saturday in Redmond, WA on 4/15/2017 was a success! My wife and I really enjoyed Seattle and our tour of the Microsoft campus in Redmond. the people were great, the presenters were very informative, the food was awesome and Killa DBA had a "killer" performance!
Here is a snippet of the performance:
Here are a few pictures from my trip to Microsoft (Bldg 92)
Over 20 years as a DBA. I've created solutions to many issues. Wrote a song about it. Wanna hear it?
