Geek Reading August 26, 2015

Leading off today, we have MIT News reporting on crash-tolerant data storage. This could be an interesting development, but we have to see if it takes hold in industry. Google Cloud Platform announces the availability of user defined functions (UDFs) in Google BigQuery. My understanding is that this missing piece was a major complaint about the BigQuery platform. In a slightly more geeky post, the YunoJuno Tech Team shows us how to use SQL window functions to generate a report on month-over-month and year-over-year revenue numbers. More importantly, it shows that SQL can be more advanced than people tend to think.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
