Interesting Stuff - Week 3

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, January 21, 2018

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.


Distributed Computing

  • The Lambda and the Kappa Architectures. Murat dissects an article / paper by Jimmy Lin (no not the actor, but Jimmy Lin of Twitter fame), comparing Lambda and Kappa architectures. It is an interesting read, I would so have wanted to read the actual article, but it sits behind a pay-wall.


  • The Future is Quantum with Dr. Krysta Svore. I have in a couple of blog-posts covered a bit about Microsoft’s quantum computing efforts (here and here). This is the transcript of a pod-cast with Dr. Krysta Svore, who is Principal Research Manager of the Microsoft Quantum group. Very, very interesting!!

Data Science

SQL Server R Services

A couple of more posts in the Microsoft SQL Server R Services series have been published:
