Interesting Stuff - Week 35


Throughout the week, I read a lot of blog-posts, articles, etc., that has to do with things that interest me

This is the "roundup" of the posts that has been most interesting to me, for the week just gone by.

I know, I know - there is not much for this week. A major reason for this is that, here in South Africa, we are in SQL Saturday season right now. What has that got to do with anything you may ask - well, it is like this:

In April/May (or thereabouts) emails are going out from the organizers asking for submissions to the upcoming SQL Saturday's. At that stage I have some "awesome" ides what to present about, typically some new cool stuff coming - hopefully - just in time for SQL Saturday.

So, I put together some topics with blurbs what the presentation will be about. Then I promptly forget about this until I receive an email a month, or thereabout, before the "gig" - saying what talks have been accepted. At that stage I am like : "cool, my talk about xyz got accepted, let's see what to cover. Ah well, I have plenty of time ...".

Then, all of a sudden it is one week before the first "gig", and I realize I have nothing prepared yet, so NOW it is time to burn the midnight oil. And that is what I have been doing the last week (and will be next week, and the one after that). The upside of this is that the talks could potentially result in a blog-post or two.

Anyway, that aside, here is what I have found.

SQL Server

Streaming

SQL Server R Services

Shameless Self Promotion

In the beginning of this post I wrote about how it is SQL Saturday "season" here in South Africa. If you are around, and interested I am talking at:

In addition to the above, I just came home from:

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.
