Interesting Stuff - Week 7, 2021

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, February 14, 2021

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.

Data Architecture

Big Data Analytics


  • Introducing Confluent Platform 6.1. The post linked to here announces, as the title implies, the 6.1 version of Confluent Platform. There are quite a few new exciting features in this release. What excites me the most are the enhanced functionality of ksqlDB! That is something that will help us at Derivco a lot.

WIND (What Is Niels Doing)

While writing my blog posts about the open-sourced Python SQL Server language extension, I wanted to install SQL Server on a new, clean server. I decided to do it on an Azure VM instead of “messing” with VM’s on my box.

It was not as straight forward as I thought, so I am now about to finish a post about what I did.

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.
