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, for the week just gone by.

SQL Server

  • Graph Database with T-SQL. Tomaz takes us through the new graph database functionality in SQL Server 2017. I so wanted to look into the graph capabilities of SQL Server 2017, but haven’t had time, sigh!
  • Faster temp table and table variable by using memory optimization. Oh, this is cool! The post talks about increasing performance for temp tables and table variables by using in-memory optimizations.
  • SQLCLR and Certificates. A post by myself, discussing how to authorize SQLCLR assemblies for permissions other than SAFE. In this post I probably also offend some people by saying I don’t think that TRUSTWORTHY is that bad.
  • SQL Server 2017, SQLCLR and Permissions. Geez, I have been productive this week - a second post by me. While investigating the post above, I came across some changes in SQL Server 2017, regarding SQLCLR and permissions. This post is the result.

Data Science



  • #NoTDD. A very thought provoking post regarding the advantages/disadvantages of TDD.

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.
