Interesting Stuff - Week 17

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, April 30, 2017

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.


  • Nikita Ivanov on Apache Ignite In-Memory Computing Platform. You can hardly turn around without “bumping” into a platform offering in-memory computing. Apcahe Ignite is a newcomer to the mix, and - in an InfoQ interview - Nikita Ivanov talks about what Apache Ignite is. To me it is interesting as it supports both both key-value persistence as well as streaming and complex-event processing.

SQL Server

SQL Server R Services

Just an update about where I am with my series about SQL Server R Services. I am busy working on Internals - V, and I had hoped to have it out by now, but there are some things I still want to investigate further. I hope I will be able to publish it early this coming week. In the meantime you can always go back and read the previous posts :):

  2. Microsoft SQL Server R Services - Internals I
  3. Microsoft SQL Server R Services - Internals II
  4. Microsoft SQL Server R Services - Internals III

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.
