I admit, this post is primarily to provide a place for me to copy and paste my own code, but it’s so sweet I figured some of you other SQL Server Data Tool Users might find it handy.
When troubleshooting the generated deployment scripts I’ve always added a PRINT statement to indicate the beginning and ending of the pre and post deploy section. But, a post by SSDT kingpin Jamie Thompsonmade my…
BREAKING NEWS: more shark attacks during shark week because they all think we’re saying ‘shark weak’ and it upsets them
What does it take to get a kid to stay in school and graduate? Sometimes motivation is highly external: New York City has experimented with paying students when they get good grades. Sometimes it’s highly internal: Angela Duckworth’s research focuses on how personality traits like “grit” and perseverance help students persist through hardships at school. Both of these extremes are elusive and hard to implement: Not every city has a wealthy mayor who wants to help bankroll a student-payment system. Not every child has “grit”—and researchers don’t really know how to teach it.

Cloudera Engineering (@ClouderaEng) shipped a mountain of new product (production-grade software, not just technical previews): Cloudera Impala, Cloudera Search, Cloudera Navigator, Cloudera Development Kit (now Kite SDK), new Apache Accumulo packages for CDH, and several iterative releases of CDH and Cloudera Manager. (And, the Cloudera Enterprise 5 Beta release was made available to the world.). Furthermore, as always, a ton of bug fixes and new features went upstream, with the features notably but not exclusively HiveServer2 and Apache Sentry (incubating).
How many things can you read in this paragraph?

- more and more projects brought under the CDH umbrella. Does more ever become too much? (I cannot explain why, but my first thought was “this feels so Oracle-style”)
- Cloudera’s current big bet is Impala. SQL and low latency querying. A big win for the project, but not necessarily a direct financial win for Cloudera, was its addition as a supported service on Amazon Elastic MapReduce.
