Interesting Stuff - Week 24, 2020

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, June 14, 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.

Big Data

Distributed Computing


WIND (What Is Niels Doing)

Lockdown, lockdown, lockdown! What I would not give to be able to go out and have dinner with good friends at a restaurant right now!

Apart from that, things are not that bad. I am still working on the follow-up to the A Lap Around SQL Server 2019 Big Data Cluster: Background & Technology post. The upcoming post looks at the architecture. So when will it be published you may ask - I have no idea!

On Wednesday, (June 17), I am co-hosting the second The Azure Sketches, Architect Series webinar together with Gordon Beeming and Lawrance Reddy. We use a combination of traditional drawing & sketching with actual solution building to help reinforce the thought process in building Azure solutions and all of the dependencies in between. If you are interested, here is the link for registration.

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.
