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

  • The DMV Diaries: sys.dm_os_threads. So while Ewald is on a threads and tasks journey, he also peeks into the diaries of DMV’s. This is the first, in hopefully many to come posts about the guts of DMV’s. I have said it before, and I say it again; Ewald’s blog is a MUST read if you are interested in the inner workings of SQL Server! What are you waiting for - go ahead and read it!!!


  • Event Grid. This is so “freaking” awesome, so there are no words for it! A single service for managing routing of all events from any source to any destination. Designed for high availability, consistent performance, and dynamic scale! I so have to play with it research this!

Distributed Computing


It’s been a while since I have had any coverage of Apache Kafka and / or Apache Flink. Fortunately that changes today!

Data Science

SQL Server R Services

  • Microsoft SQL Server R Services - Internals IX. I published “episode” nine of the SQL Server R Services Internals “saga”. Here we look at what communication methods are being used between the various components in play when we execute sp_execute_external_script.

~ Finally

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.
