Speaking at Data Toboggan 2021
On Saturday, January 30th, 2021, I will be speaking at the first Data Toboggan event! This is a free event focusing on Azure Synapse Analytics. There are 14 sessions scheduled in 12 hours, covering topics such as data integration, machine learning, data warehousing, data governance, and more. Join us 🤓
I will be presenting a session called Pipelines and Data Flows: Introduction to Data Integration in Azure Synapse Analytics.
Pipelines and Data Flows: Introduction to Data Integration in Azure Synapse Analytics
Do you regularly need to get data for your projects?
Data is at the core of every Business Intelligence, Data Science, and Machine Learning project. You need data to understand what has happened in the past, to predict what may happen in the future, to discover patterns and anomalies, and to gain the insight necessary for making faster and better decisions.
But before you can do any of those things, you need to ingest, store, transform, integrate, and prepare your data. Guess what? You can do all of those things in Azure Synapse Analytics - without having to write any code!
In this session, we will cover the fundamentals of data integration in Azure Synapse Analytics. First, we will go through what Pipelines and Data Flows are. Then, we will quickly build a solution for ingesting and transforming data. Finally, we will look at how to orchestrate and schedule our pipelines, and how to monitor our solution once it has been deployed.
Join us at Data Toboggan!
