This Week I Learned -

Azure SQL Database Managed Instance, a new deployment option in SQL Database that streamlines the migration of SQL Server workloads to a fully managed database service. This new Managed Instance deployment option provides full SQL Server engine compatibility and native virtual network (VNET) support.

* Azure Hybrid Benefit for SQL Server is a benefit exclusive to Azure that enables you to use your SQL Server licenses with Software Assurance to pay a reduced rate on Managed Instance.

* Microsoft recommends using general-purpose v2 storage accounts over Blob storage accounts for most scenarios. General-purpose v1 (GPv1) accounts provide access to all Azure Storage services, but may not have the latest features or the lowest per gigabyte pricing. For example, cool storage and archive storage are not supported in GPv1. Pricing is lower for GPv1 transactions, so workloads with high churn or high read rates may benefit from this account type. Blob storage accounts support all the same block blob features as GPv2, but are limited to supporting only block blobs. Pricing is broadly similar to pricing for general-purpose v2 accounts.

* Where you sit has mattered for years at Facebook. The company's ad group traditionally sat far away from Mr. Zuckerberg. But after Facebook went public and started a big push for revenue, important members of the ad team moved next to the boss, said García Martínez, who wrote a book about his experiences inside Facebook, "Chaos Monkeys: Obscene Fortune and Random Failure in Silicon Valley"...at Facebook, the A.I. lab is no longer side by side with Mr. Zuckerberg because it also grew too large - NY Times

A latchkey kid or latchkey child is a child who returns from school to an empty home, or a child who is often left at home with little parental supervision, because their parent or parents are away at work. The term latchkey kid became commonplace to describe members of Generation X, who according to a 2004 marketing study, “went through its all-important, formative years as one of the least parented, least nurtured generations in U.S. history.” Latchkey kids were prevalent during this time, a result of increased divorce rates and increased maternal participation in the workforce, at a time before childcare options outside the home were widely available. These latchkey children, referred to as "day orphans" in the 1984 documentary, To Save Our Children to Save Our Schools, came predominately from middle or upper-class homes. The higher the educational attainment of the parents, the higher the odds the children of this time would be latchkey kids. Positive effects of being a latchkey child include independence and self-reliance at a young age - Wikipedia

* Taoists don't believe in God at all. They believe in a principle of harmony
