Geez, does time fly or what? We are already past the halfway mark of the year! Anyway, 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.


  • A one size fits all database doesn’t fit anyone. A very interesting post by Werner Vogels, CTO at Amazon, where he argues that (from the article): The days of the one-size-fits-all monolithic database are behind us, and developers are now building highly distributed applications using a multitude of purpose-built databases.. As I said, a very interesting read!


Big Data / Cloud

Data Science

SQL Server Machine Learning Services

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.
