Interesting Stuff - Week 30, 2022

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, July 31, 2022

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

Azure Data Explorer


  • 4 Must-Have Tests for Your Apache Kafka CI/CD with GitHub Actions. This post looks at applying GitOps principles to the development lifecycle of a Kafka client application using GitHub Actions: for testing locally and in Confluent Cloud, with and without Schema Registry, and for schema evolution.
  • The Heart of the Data Mesh Beats Real-Time with Apache Kafka. We all have heard about the “data mesh” by now. A requirement of the data mesh infrastructure is that it is real-time, reliable, and scalable. This post explores how Apache Kafka, as an open and scalable decentralized real-time platform, can be the basis of a data mesh infrastructure and – complemented by many other data platforms like a data warehouse, data lake, and lakehouse – solve real business problems.
