Interesting Stuff - Week 35, 2021

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, August 29, 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.

Big Data / Machine Learning

Data Architecture

Azure Data Explorer

  • Timeseries Analytics Capabilities, and Azure Data Explorer (ADX). I guess that for you who read my blog, it doesn’t come as a surprise that I have a thing for Azure Data Explorer. The post here looks at time-series analytics and explores the types of core functionality typical for time-series data processing applications. It further looks at how functionality built into ADX aligns exceptionally well to meet these challenges head-on.


WIND (What Is Niels Doing)

By now, you probably know that I:

Figure 1: Breakout Session

Yes, as we see in Figure 1 I am presenting at the 2021 Data Platform Summit:

I mentioned in a previous roundup how the organizers have managed to increase the capacity of the virtual platform to 10,000! So, they have opened up FREE booking for LIVE attendance for a limited time. They have an internal quota, and once that is full, the free booking will close. So, what are you waiting for? Hurry up to register for FREE!

Oh, I am not only doing the conference session above, but also a post-conference training class; 4 hours per day over 2 days:

There are still a couple of seats (virtual) available for my class, so - if you are interested - register here.

That’s all for this week. I hope you enjoy what I did put together. Please comment on this post or ping me if you have ideas for what to cover.
