Overview

Your accelerated 2-day Azure Academy course will teach you how to unleash the analytics power of Azure Data Lake and Data Factory. Firebrand has worked closely with Microsoft and partners to develop this deep-dive Azure course, which includes more than 80% in-depth technical content not found in Microsoft Official Curriculum.

Using technologies like Hadoop, SQL, and Azure Data Lake Analytics, you'll learn to use Azure Data Factory to orchestrate the movement and transformation of your data. You'll also learn how to use Azure Data Lake technologies in your big data applications to generate insights from structured and unstructured data sources.

You'll cover a range of exciting topics, as you learn:

  • About Azure Data Lake and Data Factory - key concepts and capabilities
  • How to write, run and manage on-demand analytics jobs using U-SQL language
  • How to extend U-SQL using C#
  • How to develop end-to-end Data Factory pipelines using Visual Studio
  • To transform and process raw data into predictions using a range of technologies

You'll be immersed in these Azure technologies, using Firebrand's Lecture | Lab | Review technique to help you learn faster. You'll do this by combining theory with hands-on practical labs, supported by structured review sessions to reinforce learning and accelerate knowledge development. The labs are also designed to develop skills that you can transfer directly into real world working scenarios.
