Beginner's Guide to Data Integration using Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse Analytics

What is at the core of every Business Intelligence, Data Science, and Machine Learning project?

Data.

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 collect, store, transform, integrate, and prepare your data.

That's where you and I fit in!

In this full-day workshop, you will learn the skills you need to build and maintain data integration solutions in Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse Analytics.

We will start with a conceptual overview, go through the fundamentals of ingesting data, and discuss when and why you would choose Azure Data Factory or Azure Synapse Analytics. Then, we will build a metadata-driven solution for moving data between on-premises and cloud data stores, and look at options for transforming and preparing data for further analysis. As we move from individual development to team development, we will configure source control, security, and review options for continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD). Throughout the day, we will cover best practices for development and evaluate how to optimize our solutions for both performance and pricing.

Bring your laptop and get ready for a day full of learning and new ideas!
