ETL for Beginners
We’ve heard of ETL or Extract, Load and Transfer for a long time now. But now we are talking about ELT, but why. This introductory presentation will walk you through the basics of understanding what ETL and ELT are, why we care and options you have for implementing a proper solution.

Main Presentation:
Real-World Data Movement and Orchestration Patterns using Azure Data Factory
In this session, we will start with an overview of Azure Data Factory V2 concepts, then show you how you can use metadata to quickly build scalable serverless pipelines to move data from disparate data sources including On-Premises and Platform As A Service. Next, we will look at how to integrate the solution using continuous integration and deployment techniques. Finally, we will look at how to schedule, monitor and log our solution.
Whether you are just getting started with Azure Data Factory or looking to make your current data factory robust and enterprise-ready this session will take you to the next level.
