24 Hours of PASS: Past Learnings and Future Visions

PASS turns 20 this April! To celebrate 20 years of educating data professionals, they are organizing a 24 Hours of PASS with the theme Past Learnings and Future Visions. From April 3-4, you can watch 24 free webinars back-to-back. If you can’t attend all 24 webinars live (who can!?), they will all be recorded. Woohoo!

I’m presenting a brand new session called Pipelines and Packages: Introduction to Azure Data Factory. If Azure Data Factory is not really your thing, don’t worry! You can choose from 23 other topics, including SQL Server, Power BI, AI, Containers, and even Professional Development.

Video: Azure Data Factory Data Flows Introduction

Video: Azure Data Factory Data Flows Introduction

In January 2019, I was honored to be asked to contribute to the PASS Insights BI Edition Newsletter. I said yes, of course! :) I chose to create an Azure Data Factory Data Flows introduction video. This is a sneak preview of the upcoming Data Flows feature, with a quick walkthrough of how easy it can be to create scalable data transformations in the cloud – without writing any code!

Please note: As of January 2019, when I recorded this video and published this blog post, Azure Data Factory Data Flows is still in preview. Features will be added and things will get changed, just like all the other Azure products. But! Hopefully this shows what you can look forward to.

At the end of this blog post, I have tried to answer some frequently asked questions about Azure Data Factory Data Flows.
