As I’ve spent last few days on my preparation for PRINCE2 Practicioner exam (THAT. WAS. FREAKING. HARD.), I don’t have much to share (except. that the EXAM. WAS. FREAKING. HARD.), but it doesn’t mean nothing exciting happened in a few last days (not counting exciting exam - YES. IT. WAS. FREAKING. HARD.):

  1. Harsh criticism for Visual Studio 11 Beta in Dr. Dobbs - http://drdobbs.com/windows/232602205

  2. Flow Platform - CEP in the cloud (YES!) - http://flow.net/solutions/platform-apis

  3. "Planning for Big Data" released for free by O’Reilly - http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920025559.do

  4. "Introducing Microsoft SQL Server 2012" released for free by Microsoft Press - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/microsoft_press/archive/2012/03/15/free-ebook-introducing-microsoft-sql-server-2012.aspx

Enjoy the links. And in the meantime keep fingers crossed for my exam’s results (I should get them in few weeks) - it actually appeared to be much harder than the sample exams taken during preparation sessions.
