Interesting Stuff - Week 27, 2019

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, July 7, 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.



WIND (What Is Niels Doing)

Yeah, what am I doing:

  • As you may know, I am a Microsoft Data Platform MVP, and the annual renewal for the MVP program happens July 1. Every MVP is on “tenterhooks” this date; “will I get renewed or not”. Well, I am happy to say that I was renewed for another year. I want to thank all of you that read my blog posts, comes to my presentations at conferences, etc.: this is all down to you - THANK YOU!
  • A week or two ago I started on the first post in a series looking at how to get data out of SQL Server into a streaming world. I had hoped to have that post published by now, but I am still working on it. Hopefully, I can get it out in a week or so.

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.
