Throughout the week, I read a lot of blog-posts, articles, and so forth, 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 blog-post is the “roundup” of the things that have been most interesting to me, for the week just ending.

Distributed Computing


  • Confluent Kafka Videos. This link is to a YouTube video library of Kafka videos. If you are interested in Kafka, then I recommend you watch these videos.

Big Data / Cloud

Data Science

SQL Server Machine Learning Services

I am still busy writing the follow-up post to my sp_execute_external_script and SQL Compute Context - I post from three weeks ago. The post is supposed to be about why executing code in the SQL Server Compute Context gives so much better performance than when executing in the local context. Initially, I thought it was straightforward; boy was I wrong.

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.
