Learn how to develop powerful data analytics applications quickly for SQL Server database administrators and developers. Organizations will be able to sift data and derive the business intelligence needed to drive business decisions and profit. The addition of R to SQL Server 2016 places a powerful analytical processor into an environment most developers are already comfortable with - Visual Studio. This book walks even the newest of users through the creation process of a powerful R-language tool set for use in analyzing and reporting on your data. As a SQL Server database administrator or developer, it is sometimes difficult to stay on the bleeding edge of technology. Microsofts addition of R to SQL Server 2016 is sure to be a game-changer, and the language will certainly become an integral part of future releases. R is in fact widely used today in statistical and related applications, and its use is only growing. Beginning SQL Server R Serviceshelps you jump on board this important trend by providing good examples with detailed explanations of the WHY and not just the HOW. Walks you through setup and installation of SQL Server R Services. Explains the basics of working with R Tools for Visual Studio. Provides a road map to successfully creating custom R code. What You Will Learn Discover Rs role in the SQL Server 2016 hierarchy. Manage the components needed to run SQL Server R Services code. Run R-language analytics and queries inside the database. Create analytic solutions that run across multiple datasets. Gain in-depth knowledge of the R language itself. Implement custom SQL Server R Services solutions. Who This Book Is For Beginning SQL Server R Services is for any level of database administrator or developer, but specifically its for those developers with the need to develop powerful data analytics applications quickly. Seasoned R developers will appreciate the book for its robust learning pattern, using visual aids in combination with properties explanations and scenarios. Beginning SQL Server R Services is the perfect new hire gift for new database developers in any organization. Bradley Beard is a professional software developer residing in the lovely city of Palm Bay, Florida. He started off designing websites using PHP and MySQL in the late 90s, and gradually moved on to ColdFusion and SQL Server. His breadth of SQL Server experience began with SQL Server 7, mainly concentrated on SQL Server 2000, and then picked up again in SQL Server 2008. He earned his MCSA: SQL Server 2012 certification in 2013, his MCSE: Business Intelligence certification in 2016, he was the Technical Reviewer for Mike McQuillans Introducing SQL Server, available from Apress, and he is the author of Practical Maintenance Plans in SQL Server, also available from Apress.
This book is dedicated to the numerical modeling of shallow geothermal systems. The utilization of shallow geothermal energy involves the integration of multiple Borehole Heat Exchangers (BHE) with Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP) systems to provide heating and cooling. The modeling practices explained in this book can improve the efficiency of these increasingly common systems. The book begins by explaining the basic theory of heat transport processes in man-made as well as natural media. . These techniques are then applied to the simulation of borehole heat exchangers and their interaction with the surrounding soil. The numerical and analytical models are verified against analytical solutions and measured data from a Thermal Response Test, and finally, a real test site is analyzed through the model and discussed with regard to BHE and GSHP system design and optimization. Dr. Nagel heads the groups Computational Energy Systems at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ in Leipzig, Germany, as well as Environmental Geotechnics: Multi-physics simulation for geotechnical system analysis, a joint work group between the UFZ and the Federal Institute for Geosciences and Natural Resources (BGR). He holds an Adjunct Professorship at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, and his main research interests are continuum mechanics and multiphysical processes in porous media for applications in energy, geotechnics and biology. During his Masters studies of Mechanical Engineering/Applied Mechanics at Chemnitz University of Technology, he discovered his fascination for coupled problems during several research stays at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago and Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, where he studied the biomechanical and tribological properties of osteochondral transplants and artificial intervertebral discs as well as the causes of deep tissue injury in skeletal muscle tissue. In 2012 he was awarded his PhD from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, for a dissertation on the role of mechanical cues in regenerating and engineered skeletal tissues. Since then he has been working at the UFZ as part of a team of scientist developing the numerical simulation framework OpenGeoSys for coupled multi-physical problems. His particular foci are thermochemical heat storage, sensible heat storage in porous media and geotechnical applications in the context of energy supply, storage and waste management. Junior-Prof. Dr. Haibing Shao leads the work group Geothermal Systems Analysis (https://www.ufz.de/index.php?en=37482) in the Department of Environmental Informatics at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ. He is also jointly appointed as a Junior Professor at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg. His research interests are the numerical modelling of coupled processes in shallow and deep geothermal reservoirs. As a senior developer, he has been working with the open-source scientific software OpenGeoSys (www.opengeosys.org) for more than 10 years. He studied environmental engineering at the Tongji University in Shanghai (China) and obtained his Masters degree at the University of Tübingen. In 2010, he earned his PhD title from TU Dresden, and since then working as a staff scientist at the UFZ.
