When you go out to a night of SQL Karaoke, there are a lot of people that you’ll meet. This week we are interviewing David Maxwell (Blog | @dmmaxwell), I’ve met David a number of times at SQL Karaoke events. As opposed to myself, David can actually sing; which is not a quality that we all share. Here’s what David has to say about SQL Karaoke.
Who are you?
David Maxwell, a Production Support DBA from Columbus OH.
When did you first SQLKaraoke?
My first SQL Karaoke experience was SQL Saturday Cleveland in 2011. If figured if I was gonna drive through a blizzard to get there, I was going to make it count.
What is your favorite SQLKaraoke song?
I would have to say Bohemian Rhapsody, with everyone up there, all singing their hearts out.
What is your favorite SQLKaraoke singer?
I could never pick just one. Mark Vaillancourt (Blog | @markvsql), Jes Schultz Borland (Blog | @grrl_geek), Eddie Wuerch (Blog | @EddieW), Wendy Pastrick (Blog | @wendy_dance), Jason Strate (Blog| @StrateSQL)… I know, every time they get up there, it’s gonna be awesome.
Do you SQLKaraoke?
Absolutely. I wouldn’t miss it for anything. Singing, and hanging out with my cool people. What’s not to love?
What are you thinking right “meow”?
That trying to run the MAP toolkit, Foglight, three instances of of SQL and deployment scripts on my management workstation provides an excellent opportunity to answer emails from my laptop.
Anything you want to add?
Tons of people have said this before, so I’m kind of preaching to the choir, but SQL Karaoke is about community, friends, fun… having a good time with people who you can relate to. It’s not about the singing itself, and especially not about singing ability. Get up there and have fun with it, and I hope to see you at the next event.
