Atlanta-based Homer McEwen has been a database administrator for more than 20 years. But it’s what he does in his spare time that makes McEwen, aka KillaDBA, a little different. The husband and father of three writes and records songs about SQL Server, the platform that helps power the travel company he works for. We sat down with KillaDBA and learned about everything from his top musical influences to his reaction when he found out he’d be performing at SQL Saturday in Redmond on April 15.

After talking with him and hearing his music, even we’re seeing SQL Server in a whole new light.

 

Give it a listen.
