Azure Data Platform Open Hack: From Ingestion to Consumption by Stijn Winants, Steve Verschaeve & Rick Meijvogel.
This workshop is designed to get hands on experience with a Modern Data Solution. During this day, the participants will be wrangling data inside the Azure Data Platform, going from ingestion to consumption. At the end of the day, the participants will have the required skillset to build their own modern data warehouse using the full power of the Azure stack.
For this workshop, you will be working in small groups of 3 people. There will be experts present during the workshop who can help you with all the questions you might have, and they will also guide you in choosing one of the possible solutions for the scenario. This ensures a high level of interactivity to have an excellent knowledge transfer between both your team and the experts. The winner of the day is determined based on their progress, quality and team spirit. It’s not about winning; participating will already give you the tools to become a modern data expert.
You will need to bring your own laptop with SSMS, Visual Studio and Visual Studio code installed. An Azure access promo code will be provided to you for the duration of the workshop.
