Anybody who’s worked on a data warehouse knows the date dimension is key. Designing it is complex and filling it might be tricky and time consuming. In this article I simply share SQL scripts I came up with to fill the date dimension in a PostgreSQL data warehouse.

In this post I quickly go through 3 best practices you should know before you start using Talend. They might seem a bit abstract at first, but they will save you a lot of time in the (not so) long run.
I Need A Dollar is the song that really made Aloe Blacc known to the general public. In my opinion, the most recognisable instruments on the track are the bass and the brass section. Here is the bass transcription…

Batch entry 0 INSERT INTO "public"."log" ("source","logged") VALUES ('188.8.131.52','2017-06-21 13:52:23') was aborted. Call getNextException to see the cause.
Ever bump into this kind of exception? This issue drove me crazy, and it took me a good few hours to figure out how to deal with it. The solution is actually very simple… once you know it!
What do PostgreSQL 9.2, Oracle 12c and MySQL 5.7.8 have in common? They all integrated JSON as a possible data type. Pretty cool, huh?! Actually, I think using JSON in a relational database is one of the worst ideas you can have. Let me explain why.

The paper Improving the Utility of Anonymized Datasets through Dynamic Evaluation of Generalization Hierarchies has been accepted for publications at the IEEE 17th International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration.
The title says it all: the book Big Data: Storage, Sharing, and Security is out. Even better, you can buy it here!
