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



SQL Saturday

So the SQL Saturday “season” is over for me for this year. I did one talk in Johannesburg, two in Cape Town (this and this), and one in Durban.

In addition to the conference talks I also did a full-day workshop in Cape Town and Durban about SQL Server Machine Learning Services: A Day of SQL Server Machine Learning Services with Niels Berglund.

When we talk about SQL Saturdays I want to thank the organisers in the various cities:

They are doing a fantastic work, entirely voluntarily. A HUGE, HUGE THANK YOU to all of you!

SQL Server Machine Learning Services

Now when SQL Saturday is over, I plan to get back to write about SQL Server Machine Learning Services. I am working right now 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 two.

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.
