Interesting Stuff - Week 39, 2019

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, September 29, 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.


  • Announcing .NET Core 3.0. The title says it all, .NET Core 3.0 is now released! Go and get it!
  • “Stubs” in the .NET Runtime. This post is another performance related post by Matthew. In the post, he discusses “Stubs” which is used in the .NET framework to provide a level of indirection. The post explores what they are, how they work, and why they’re needed.


Distributed Computing

  • On Sharding. This post by Tim Bray, (of XML fame), discusses different types of sharding in high traffic scenarios. It is always interesting to read what Tim has to say, as he has tremendous experience in all aspects of computing.
  • Components of Kubernetes Architecture. I can warmly recommend this post to anyone interested in Kubernetes. The post gives a handy overview of the components of Kubernetes.

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.
