Data integration (SSIS, DataStage, Informatica, etc.) developers, DBAs, cloud enthusiasts.
I begin by creating a Data Factory in Azure, exploring two options: using the interface provided at the Azure portal (cleverly registered as portal.azure.com) and PowerShell scripts known as Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates generated from the Azure portal.
I lead you on an expedition inside the ADF portal – navigating the Overview, Author, and Monitoring pages – surfacing what’s where, what’s it for, how to use it in real life. I survey ADF constituents; pipelines, datasets, connections, linked servers, and triggers.
I demonstrate how to build a simple pipeline, popping through the list of available activities and demonstrating as many as time will allow.
Why I Want to Present This Session:
I am an experienced data integration developer, but that’s not why you should vote for (or attend) this presentation. You should vote for / attend this session because I *love* data integration. I’ve been doing this kind of work for decades, before I even knew the proper term for this kind of work.
Plus, my goal is to leave it all on the field.
