Interesting Stuff - Week 48

Posted by nielsb on Saturday, December 2, 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, for the week just gone by.

SQL Server


Data Science

  • Developing and Operationalizing Models with Azure. This post provides an overview of how to efficiently develop and operationalize ML models on Azure.
  • On dataflow systems, Naiad and Tensorflow. Murat looks at data flow systems and compares TensorFlow with Microsoft’s Naiad. I obviously had heard about TensorFlow, and even written blog-posts about it, but Naiad was new to me. It sounds very interesting but when you look at the GitHub repo, the newest contributions are 3 years old. That makes me winder whether the project is still alive. Reading some comments in the repo, it seems Naiad is abandoned - pity!

SQL Server R Services

  • Microsoft SQL Server R Services - Internals XV. A continuation of what I covered in [Internals - XIV], here I look at packets sizes as in TDS vs. BXL. I also look at what happens inside SQL Server when it sends a BXL packet to the SQL Satellite.

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.
