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.
NOTE: It is now coming up on Christmas and New Year, and I will take a break with these posts and come back in the beginning of next year.
- Should you move your Big Data and Data Lake to the Cloud. The post linked to here discusses the pros and cons of running your data lake(s) in the “cloud”. Interesting read!
SQL Server 2019
- Tools and commands for running SQL Server 2019 on Linux. This post is about running Microsoft SQL Server 2019 on Linux. It provides necessary information that is good to know before upgrading or migrating SQL Server onto Linux.
- Creating a Kubernetes lab for Windows Users. This is a “cool” post discussing how to set up Kubernetes on Windows using Minikube.
- Monoliths, Microservices, Events, Functions: What It Takes to Go Through the Transformation. This is an InfoQ presentation discussing lessons learned building apps in a distributed environment.
- Building Reactive Pipelines: How to Go from Scalable Apps to (Ridiculously) Scalable Systems. The InfoQ presentation linked to here discusses and demos reactive and highly scalable microservices built with Project Reactor using RabbitMQ, Apache Kafka, and Spring Cloud Stream.
- Transferring Avro Schemas Across Schema Registries with Kafka Connect. The tutorial linked to here discusses how to replicate Avro schemas across independent Kafka Schema Registry clusters without overwriting any schemas. This is being made possible through the help of a custom Kafka Connect Single Message Transform (SMT). Very interesting read!
- Kafdrop: An Open-Source Kafka UI. This post by Emil looks at an open-source Kafka Web UI: Kafdrop. Kafdrop looks very promising, and I’ll definitely check it out. As a side note; you should really follow Emil, he posts awesome articles around event-driven architecture and microservices.
- Kafka Donuts - on KSQLDB - #2. The second post by my friend and colleague Charl about donuts and ksqlDB. You find the first post here.
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.
