Throughout the week, I read a lot of blog-posts, articles, and so forth, that has to do with things that interest me:
- data science
- data in general
- 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.
- Considering Azure Functions for a serverless data streaming scenario. A blog post which describes a solution of using Azure server-less to create a data pipeline to detect fraudulent transactions. Quite a lot of exciting technologies/solutions!

SQL Server 2019
- SQL Server 2019 Extensibility Framework & Java - Hello World. In the roundup for last week I wrote how I was working on a blog post about the new Java functionality in SQL Server 2019. This is it. In this post I take a look at how to install and enable the Java extensions. The post finishes with some very simple Java code which I execute from SQL Server. Do not be surprised if more posts comes shortly about Java.
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.
