Interesting Stuff - Week 45, 2022

Posted by nielsb on Sunday, November 13, 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 / Engineering

Azure Data Explorer

Azure Functions

  • Announcing public preview of the Azure SQL trigger for Azure Functions. Azure Functions is “da’ bomb”. We all know that! This post announces something that makes it even better: the ability to trigger a function from changes to a table(s) in Azure SQL DB. We have had for a while the ability to use Azure SQL Bindings to connect and write to Azure SQL DB, but this now gives us the ability to “listen” to changes in the database. Very cool!


WIND (What Is Niels Doing)

Well as I mentioned in last weeks roundup I am off to Seattle and the PASS Data Community Summit 2022, where I present:

  • ksqlDB - The Real-Time Streaming Database. As the title implies, the presentation is about ksqlDB.

I am flying out this evening and will be back in SA next Sunday. Then the following Saturday (November 26), I present at the Azure BootCamp South Africa 2022 in Cape Town. There I am doing two talks:

  • Analyze Billions of Rows of Data in Real-Time Using Azure Data Explorer
  • ksqlDB and Azure Serverless Functions: A Match Made in the Cloud

This will be fun, registration is FREE, so you have no excuse not to attend! 😄

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.
