Interesting Stuff - Week 33, 2020

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, August 16, 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.

Azure Data Studio

Distributed Computing

  • Telltale: Netflix Application Monitoring Simplified. This post about monitoring at Netflix came at a really good time for me, as at Derivco we are looking at improving our monitoring. So the post gives me food for thought.
  • Patterns of Distributed Systems. This article came to my attention thanks to a colleague of mine - thanks, Scott! It discusses patterns for distributed systems, and how we can build up an understanding of how to better understand, communicate and teach distributed system design.


WIND (What Is Niels Doing)

We are still in lockdown, but from tomorrow the restrictions are eased somewhat:

  • Intra-province travel is allowed.
  • Bars and restaurants can sell alcohol.
  • Alcohol and cigarettes can be sold.

Even though the restrictions are eased, I gather it will be a long time before we’ll be back in the office. Oh, well - it is what it is.

On Tuesday, (Aug 18), I co-host the 4th installment of Azure Sketches. In this session, we share our expertise and experience if you want to deliver remote working solutions to help inside a global pandemic. Fast, Remote, Agile Application and desktop solutions delivered through Azure. NGOs and Non-Profits are welcome.

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.
