TSQL2sday #95 Invitation – Big Data


T-SQL Tuesday is a monthly blog party started by Adam Machanic. Everyone is invited to this party. Participation is easy. Simply write a blog post about the topic presented and post it on the second Tuesday of the month (October 10th, 2017) between 00:00 and 23:59 UTC. Do not worry about whether something has already been written about or what the audience is looking to read. Just pick a topic that relates to the theme and show us your perspective. Rules at the bottom.

This month’s topic: Big Data

Big data is both a buzzword, or phrase, and a booming area of technology. Technical professionals and companies alike are investing a lot in big data and I want to hear your thoughts on the topic. Your post can be about; how big data affects the industry and our careers, how the cloud is enhancing our ability to work with big data, how you deal with big data in SQL Server on-premises, NoSQL, development challenges and strategies for working with internet of things data, or anything else you come up with. Big data has become quite large (pun intended) and should offer a lot of freedom for self-expression in this month’s posts.

The rules

  1. Write a post on the topic above.
  2. Schedule the post to go live on Tuesday, October 10th, 2017 between 00:00 and 23:59 UTC.
  3. Include the TSQL Tuesday logo in the top of your post.
  4. Link the post back to this one and comment on this post advertising your post.
  5. Optional, but encouraged: Tweet a link to your post using the #tsql2sday hash tag on Twitter

Extra credit

Blend your topic with emerging technologies. Some examples:

  • Work with big data in Microsoft’s new Azure Cosmos DB.
  • Show how new SQL Server 2017 features impact big data in SQL Server.
  • Show how R and Polybase can use big data for predictive analytics.

Keep the ball rolling: host your own TSQL Tuesday, read the full rules for info on how to sign up.
