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



Data Science


SQL Server 2019

  • SQL Server Big Data Clusters Workshop at SQL Bits. UK’s leading SQL Server conference SQLBits takes place in Manchester at the end of February. If you are attending, don’t miss Buck Woody’s one day SQL Server 2019 Big Data Cluster workshop. Buck knows what he talks about and he also has members of the SQL Server 2019 Big Data Cluster team on-site. I wish I could be there!

Azure Force Recon

Speaking about conferences and SQL Server Big Data Clusters; February 23 the first of many Azure tactical bootcamps is being held here in Durban, and I have the privilege to do a presentation: Live and Die with your Data, where I talk about SQL Server 2019 Big Data Clusters. So, if you do not have anything else to do, sign up and learn about Azure!

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.
