In this demo-filled session we get an overview of Azure Data Explorer, which is a fast, fully managed data analytics service for real-time analysis on large volumes of data streaming from applications, websites, IoT devices, and more. We look at how to ingest data, as well as query in real-time against billions of rows with sub-second latency.
In this demo filled session we see how we use ksqlDB to gain real-time insights into streaming data. We look at push/pull queries, User Defined Functions, tables and streams.
