Back the Truck Up: Data Loading Design Patterns for Azure Synapse Analytics

Azure Synapse Analytics recently released to much fanfare but just what makes this right platform for your data loading and processing? Is the whole greater than the sum of its parts? This session will cover a brief overview into the basic components and synapse architectural concepts. We then look at code-free ETL orchestration and how to work with the embedded spark engine directly. Along the way, we also cover some of the best practices around table design and data cleansing, enrichment and loading.
