SQL Data Partners Podcast: The Wide World Of Data

Carlos L. Chacon was nice enough to interview me on his podcast:

The expansion of data sets and increased expectations of businesses for analysis and modeling of data has led developers to create a number of database products to meet those needs. As data professionals, it is incumbent upon us to understand how these tools work and put them to their best use–before somebody else puts them to sub-optimal use.  I am joined by Kevin Feasel who walks us through some of the technologies available and sorts out under what circumstances we want to consider using each one.

Show notes are on the SQL Data Partners podcast site.  My presentation slides are available online.  And if I get just a few more people to dig Aphyr as much as I do, the world will be a better place.
