The Cortana Analytics Process (CAP) guides you through working with data from origination through computation and presentation - the Azure Data Factory provides the orchestration mechanism for complex workloads. In this bootcamp, you’ll cover a series of modules that guide you from understanding an analytics workload, the Cortana Analytics Process, the foundations of data transfer and storage, data source documentation, storage and processing using Hadoop (HDInsight) and other techniques. You’ll also learn how to work through a real-world scenario using the Cortana Analytics tools, including the Microsoft Azure Portal, PowerShell, and Visual Studio.
Join Buck Woody from the Machine Learning and Data Science team at Microsoft for an intense, hands-on session that walks you through a representative solution using multiple products including Azure Data Catalog, Azure Data Factory, HDInsight (Hadoop) and more.
- You’ll need a laptop with connectivity to the Internet
- You’ll need an Azure Account (MSDN is acceptable, as is the free account, but don’t start the free one until the day or two prior to class) capable of running multiple components such as HDInsight and Storage
- The ability to use the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to use the Data Science Virtual Machine in Azure from the event
