Hi! I'm Helen, one of your friendly mods looking after the #sql and #database tags.

At the end of each month, I'll be showcasing some of the great posts, projects, and insights from the data community.

Kicking us off this month is Lisa with an incredibly popular post all about Elasticsearch. If you are a developer who is looking to make data usable in real-time and at scale, Elasticsearch is a great tool to have on your belt.

Next up, an awesome list of all the resources you need to get started with databases. They aren't going anywhere, they're fundamental to the survival of most businesses, and they're crucial to understanding how most systems work.

The folks at Tech School return to the Wrap up with their post on finding, and fixing issues, caused by deadlocks.

Next up, Oluseyeo gives a tutorial covering the types of relationships and object reference types in MongoDB, Mongoose populate method and virtuals.

Davide from the Microsoft Azure team then gives a tutorial on how to use node.js, with Azure Functions. Azure Functions allow us to create scalable solutions without having to deal with all the infrastructural woes.

Next, Jeremy from the .NET team gives an introduction to DotMim.sync - a framework for synchronising relational databases. This will automatically sync a client, including creating the tables and populating the data if the database doesn't already exist.

To finish up this month's wrap up the team from HarperDB show a practical application for the AWS Serverless Application Model (SAM). This open-source framework is used to build serverless applications on AWS.

That's all for this month! For more from the Data Community check out the #sql, #postgres, #mysql, and #database tags, and follow @TheDatabaseDev on Twitter.
