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.
- Efficient lock-free durable sets. The post linked to is a dissection by Adrian of a white paper discussing a new approach for durable concurrent sets and the use of this approach to build the most efficient durable hash tables available today.
- A Roadmap Towards Chaos Engineering. This presentation linked to here is an InfoQ presentation presenting a roadmap for Chaos Experimentation that can be applicable to any organization.
- Stream Processing API Designs. The post linked to is part of a series about data streaming. The post discusses different API designs for stream processing. It is a very interesting read!
WIND (What Is Niels Doing)
The week just passed, I did two webinars for DataPlatformGeeks, (DPG):
- A Lap Around SQL Server 2019 Big Data Cluster. An overview of SQL Server 2019 Big Data Cluster.
- Azure Data Studio and SQL Server 2019 Big Data Cluster. We look at using Azure Data Studio to deploy and manage a SQL Server 2019 Big Data Cluster.
It was interesting doing webinars, but it is quite different than from doing conference talks. I had some technical difficulties in the first webinar, but as they say - “You Live and Learn”. Despite the technical difficulties, I certainly plan on doing more webinars.
I recommend all of you to register with DPG, as they have a plethora of free learning resources!
That’s all for this week. I hope you enjoy what I did put together. If you have ideas for what to cover, please comment on this post or ping me.
