Pulling real-time data from Twitter using StreamInsi​ght and Other Scandinavian Treasures

On my recent trip to SQLBits with subsequent visits to Dublin, Cologne, and Malmo (southern Sweden), I enjoyed a chance to meet several SQL Server MVPs, including Peter Larsson and Thomas Ivarsson.

Among them, I enjoyed Johan Ahlen's article on Pulling real-time data from Twitter using StreamInsi​ght.  You can Find Johan's blog here.  I also enjoyed several other conversations, such as the one I had with Feodor Georgiev (blog).  I particularly enjoyed Feodor's guest post on about waits in the round-trip loop from client to server back to client available HERE.

There's a rumor going around (wink, wink - nudge, nudge) that the Scandinavians will be holding a SQLRally in the fall.  I look forward to get back soon, but I'm hoping against hope that it's still warm in November.

Kevin, actually it was warm in November! (as you wished) :) Today was the second day of the SQL Rally Nordic, and we actually met earlier today at the event! :)

Nice meeting you, thank you for quoting me in your post above.
