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.

Distributed Computing

  • Introduction to Chaos Engineering. The post linked here looks at the origin, principles, and benefits of Chaos Engineering. Chaos Engineering is when you try to disrupt and break an application system to build resilience. Notice that the post is behind a paywall.

WIND (What Is Niels Doing)

In last weeks roundup, I mentioned I was looking into Azure Data Explorer as I was thinking about creating some presentations for upcoming conferences. I did submit a couple of topics to some conferences, and I had two conferences accepting talks! Woohoo! The conferences and talks are:

So now having the above talks accepted, I really need to get going with prep. I am stoked!

Oh, and I am still doing the Big Data & Analytics with SQL Server 2019 Big Data Cluster training class for the 2021 Data Platform Summit, and if you sign up for the class you get free access to the summit itself!
