So much digital water has flown under the bridges in 2013, and Log Buffer covered it all from the eyes of bloggers across database technologies like Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, and big data.

Almost 50 Log Buffer episodes in year 2013 threw light on new releases of software, cool features, elucidating obscure technical corners, conferences stories, database news, quirks, nifty tricks, trivia, and much more.

Log Buffer remained focused on every facet of database technology, and while doing so, noticed that there were a few salient technologies which interested bloggers and their readers a lot. Some of these technologies and areas were old and some new.

One evergreen area of interest for the database bloggers is discussing performance tuning. This is the one area of databases where the interest carried on from the past year, remaining hot throughout the year and will be the center of discussion next year.

The hot topics this year among the database bloggers will include big data, Cloud Computing, Engineered Systems, and the new version of Oracle database 12c.  Regardless of the database vendor, bloggers loved to explore, discuss, share, and present about these brave new bleeding edge technologies which are still evolving.
