Book Review - Designing Data-Intensive Applications

Designing Data-Intensive Applications

By: Martin Kleppman

Book Reivew

I was excited to read Part One of this book because of is deeper handling of data structures and databases. In fact, I thought (only because of what I was reading), that It was going to go much further. That is not what the title of the book says it is about, and that is not why I bought it. It was just what I got excited about as I read part one.

Parts Two and Three were out of my league. I enjoyed some concepts that were presented, but I will likely never need most of Parts Two and Three. That said, the fundamentals that Martin gives, are helpful for any application developer. The person who would be best served with the content of this book is someone who will be or is working into enterprise-level data systems. That said, I am glad I read it.

Another really nice feature of this book are the extensive footnotes. I could see this book serving as a great textbook for a school.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
