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.


  • Update on .NET Core 3.0 and .NET Framework 4.8. A blog post from the .NET engineering team, where they talk about the future of the .NET Framework and .NET Core. I wonder if this post was prompted by speculations recently about the future of the .NET Framework, where there were questions whether the .NET Framework 4.8 would be the last version, and all development would be concentrated on .NET Core.

Data Science

What Is Niels Doing (WIND)

That is a good question! As you know, I wrote two blog posts about SQL Server 2019:

My plan was to relatively quickly follow up those two posts with a third post how to run SQL Server Machine Learning Services on SQL Server 2019 on Linux, and do it inside a Docker container. After having spent some time trying to get it to work, (with no luck), I gave up and contacted a couple of persons in MS asking for help. The response was that, right now in SQL Server 2019 on Linux CTP 2.0, you cannot do it - bummer! The functionality will be in a future release.

I am now reworking the post I had started on to cover SQL Server Machine Learning Services in an Ubuntu based SQL Server 2019 on Linux. I should be able to publish something within a week or two.

I am also working on the third post in the Install R Packages in SQL Server ML Services series (still). Right now I have no idea when I can publish it - Sorry!

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.
