Interesting Stuff - Week 12, 2021

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, March 21, 2021

Throughout the week, I read a lot of blog-posts, articles, and so forth that has to do with things that interest me:

  • AI/data science
  • data in general
  • data architecture
  • streaming
  • 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

  • Financial Times Data Platform: From zero to hero. This blog post “drills” down into how Financial Times created and evolved their data platform.
  • Introducing dbt, the ETL & ELT Disrupter. Admittedly, this post’s title is somewhat click-bait:y, but the post is interesting nevertheless. It looks at dbt, (Data Build Tool), which is a command-line data pipeline tool that allows collecting and transforming data for analytics really fast, and really easy!

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.
