My article Plotting SQL Server Data for Data Visualization is up on MSSQLTips now and discusses using PyQt and Matplotlib to plot data from SQL Server.
My article Single User Performance of SQLite v SQL Server was posted yesterday on SQLServerCentral. This one does a comparison of the performance of the python implementation of SQLite and SQL Server under single user scenarios. It also touches on some interesting performance aspects of primary keys that I came across while writing the article.
Some of the commenters have pointed out that this is a somewhat “apples-to-oranges” comparison, and they have a fair point. Still, I occasionally run into cases where both are valid choices so I thought it worth writing about. One comment mentioned that SQL SE would be a more valid comparison, so I may do a brief follow up when I get a chance.
