A Day Full of Azure Data Factory

With the ever-increasing volume, variety, and velocity of data, it can feel like a daunting task to create and maintain modern data integration solutions. In this full-day workshop, you will learn the skills you need to build and orchestrate hybrid, complex and scalable data pipelines using Azure Data Factory (ADF).


We will start with a conceptual overview and cover the fundamentals of Azure Data Factory, including source control, security, and pricing. Then, we will build a metadata-driven solution to move data between on-premises and cloud sources, and continue to improve on this solution to make it more robust, dynamic and reusable. As we move from individual development to team development, we will configure monitoring, logging, and alerting, and review options for Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) using Azure DevOps. We will cover and compare Mapping Data Flows and Wrangling Data Flows, before we look at how to leverage SSIS lift and shift to gradually modernize existing solutions while retaining investments already made.


If that's not enough content for one day, you will also get access to a set of hands-on labs that you can work through at your own pace. Whether you are new to Azure Data Factory or have some experience, you will leave this workshop with new skills and ideas for your projects.
