Throughout the week, I read a lot of blog-posts, articles, etc., that has to do with things that interest me:
- data science
- data in general
- distributed computing
- SQL Server
- transactions (both db as well as non db)
- and other “stuff”
This is the “roundup” of the posts that has been most interesting to me, this week.
Hmm, this week there has not been much catching my eye. What has been is mostly data science / analytics related. Anyway, here we go.
