With COVID-19 live data easily being available, this dashboard was relatively easy to put together using BigQuery and Data studio. I was most curious about correlation between countries which have more senior citizens and its death rate. More or less, there seems to be some correlation, but there are many other factors playing a role in a country's ability to bend the curve.

Large distributed systems run into a problem which smaller systems donâ€™t usually have to worry about. â€œ Brewers CAP Theorem â€ [ Ref 1 ] [ Ref 2 ] [ Ref 3 ] defines this problem in a very simple way. It states, that though its desirable to have Consistency, High-Availability and Partition-tolerance in every system, unfortunately no system can achieve all three at the same time . C onsistent : A fully Consistent system is one where the system can guarantee that once you store a state (lets say â€œx=yâ€) in the system, it will report the same state in every subsequent operation until the state is explicitly changed by something outside the system. [ Example 1 ] A single MySQL database instance is automatically fully consistent since there is only one node keeping the state. [ Example 2 ] If two MySQL servers are involved, and if the system is designed in such a way that all keys starting â€œaâ€ to â€œmâ€ is kept on server 1, and keys â€œnâ€ to â€œzâ€ are kept on server
I heard an unconfirmed rumor that facebook is moving away from Cassandra . Not sure why, or to what, but rumors like this is a concern regardless. After twitter 's backing off , and digg's troubles ,Â which were indirectly linked to either Cassandra's maturity as a production solution or their understanding of Cassandra's capability, it might raise more eyebrows if facebook does really abandon cassandra.Â Â Cassandra was created in Facebook, which it opensourced, but its my understanding today that most of the development on the open sourced cassandra happens outside its walls. Rackspace is a big sponsor(may not be the largest anymore)Â of the open source project and Riptano , which has built a whole compnay around the open source project has done a tremendous job of promoting.
