With Audrey Hammonds

Let's take a lap around Azure Data Lake Store & Analytics! We'll cover what it is, how it's architected, why you might want to use it, and what other tools are involved (U-SQL!). The session will consist of an overview of the data store and analytics options, a live demo, and some discussion of how it all comes together.
