Throughout the week, I read a lot of blog-posts, articles, and so forth, 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 blog-post is the “roundup” of the things that have been most interesting to me, for the week just ending.
- Check out what’s new in June 2019 version of Azure SQL Database managed instance. A blog post from Microsoft, looking at new features and functionality in Azure Managed SQL Server. What is especially cool is that it is available in the South African data-centers, yay!
