For the Monday, August 13th meetup we will welcome DJ Maley to share his insights on how to effectively manage data in Azure. Data is often a key component to any system. Nearly ever system needs "data" for something. When it comes to building a solution in the cloud, there are a myriad of choices available. Do you use a relational database, or a NoSQL database? Who is responsible for managing the database platform (security, maintenance, etc.)? How can you gain insights from the data? There are lots of answers to all these questions. DJ will provide some guidance on choosing the right platform, and pros/cons with some of those approaches. This is sure to be a very relevant session for many people. Should be fun!!
Please RSVP for the meetup so we can best plan for food and drinks!
Title: How to manage your data in the cloud (and give yourself an advantage in Fantasy Football)
Abstract: There’s many ways to build a solution in the cloud today. Ever wondered what options Azure provides from a data management perspective? How do we deal with the upcoming challenges around size, scale, speed, and trusting the way data is stored? We’ll talk about how we can leverage some of these options around storing and processing data, the pros/cons with many of the approaches, and ultimately how we empower our data utilizing Machine Learning and AI (and how some of these tools might give you a leg up in Fantasy Football this year).
