Interesting Stuff - Week 17, 2019

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, April 28, 2019

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.

Data Science

  • Introducing .NET for ApacheĀ® Sparkā„¢ Preview. What the title says! Microsoft has released a preview of .NET that you can use together with Apache Spark. It is built on the Spark interop layer, designed to provide high-performance bindings to multiple languages. Being able to write C# code for Spark is so awesome; hopefully, we can soon use it in Notebooks as well.
  • Why Kubernetes is a Great Choice for Data Scientists. This is an interesting post discussing how Kubernetes can be used in a data science world.


SQL Server 2019

~ 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.
