Here are some interesting articles I read and tweeted about this past week, I think you will like these as well. If you are bored this weekend, some of these might be good for you to read
SQL Server + Python — What’s new
We recently announced SQL Server v.Next CTP1 on Linux and Windows, which brings the power of SQL Server to both Windows and — for the first time ever — Linux. You can now connect your applications to SQL Server running on Linux, Windows and macOS (with Docker).
For our Python developers, we have a few updates that will improve Python connectivity with SQL Server. Pyodbc is now:
- Ability to insert into, update and filter by values stored in encrypted columns from a Query Editor window.
- The new online encryption algorithm, exposed in the Set-SqlColumnEncryption PowerShell cmdlet, which makes tables available for both reads and writes during the initial encryption and column encryption key rotation.
This article addresses the first of the two enhancements.
