This month we have Paul Andrew taking us through using Azure Data Factory & Data Bricks.
As always beer & pizza will be provided, along with some time to network with the other meetup members.
-- Abstract --
What happens when you combine a cloud orchestration service with a Spark cluster?! The answer is a feature rich, graphical, scalable data flow environment to rival any ETL tech we’ve previously had available in Azure. In this session we’ll look at Azure Data Factory v2 and how it integrates with Azure Data Bricks to produce a powerful abstraction over the Apache Spark analytics ecosystem. Now we can transform data in Azure using Data Bricks but without the need to write a single line of Scala or Python! If you haven’t used either service yet, don’t worry, you’ll get a quick introduction to both first before going deeper into the new ADF Data Flow feature.
