Interesting Stuff - Week 3, 2020

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, January 19, 2020

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.


  • 2020 Tech Predictions. As it is the beginning of a new year, (and a decade at that), you see prediction posts being published. Here is a predictions post for 2020 from an old colleague from the Developmentor days, Ted Neward.

Data Science


  • The Reunification of .NET 5. The post linked to here discusses how Microsoft tries to merge .NET Framework with .NET Core, in order to have one single .NET offering.

The conference is free of charge, so register now and come and say Hi!
