Interesting Stuff - Week 8, 2020

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, February 23, 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.

Distributed Computing

  • Anatomy of Cascading Failure. In the InfoQ article linked to here, the author discusses what a cascading failure is, and some anti-patterns around cascading failures. If you work with distributed systems, then you should really read this article.


WIND (What Is Niels Doing)

Back in December, I did two webinars for DataPlatformGeeks, and you can read more about it here.

The webinars are free, so if you have time, register and join the fun! Notice that the times in the links above are Indian Standard Time, so 3 pm IST is 09:30 am, UTC.

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.
