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

This weeks SQL Server topic, has quite a lot about graph databases. This is an interesting subject seeing SQL Server 2017’s built-in graph capability.



This week I came across two very interesting blogs, that cover the “nitty-gritty” of .NET, and here follows a couple of really interesting posts.

  • Value Types vs Reference Types. I certainly hope that every single .NET developer knows about value types and reference types, but I bet that this post by Adam Sitnik will blow everyones mind away, when he drills deep, deep into value types and reference types!
  • Memory Usage Inside the CLR. Another deep, deep drilling post about .NET. This time by Matthew Warren, and he goes into details about internal CLR memory! You gotta read it, it is awesome!
  • Span. Oooh, this is “sexy”! Adam Sitnik posts about how to work with both managed and unmanaged memory in ,NET in a safe and efficient way!

Data Science

SQL Server R Services

I am busy working on Microsoft SQL Server R Services - Internals VIII, and hopefully it won’t take as long as VII.

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.
