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

  • The many faces of consistency. A blog post by Murat where he dissects a white paper about consistency. The paper talks about two types of consistency: state and operation. Seeing that Murat now does sabbatical work at Microsoft (see below), he compares the two consistency types with what Cosmos DB provides. The post is a must read if you are the least interested in distributed computing and consistency.

Cloud / Big Data



Data Science / AI

SQL Server Machine Learning Services

I have started on the third post in the Install R Packages in SQL Server ML Services series. I hope to be able to publish it in a week or so.

~ 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.
