Microsoft Digital Week, Data Platforms 2018 and Global Azure Bootcamp 2018

I have been quite busy with a few things in the last months, and I didn’t give a proper attention to this blog (I am also a bit of a lazy person sometimes ). So I am writing this article to do a quick recap of my extra-work activities done in the last months and what I am planning to do in the upcoming weeks.November 2017 -  WPC 2017 (Milano) – I worked with the rest of the team on the agenda of the conference. I think the conference went pretty well, based on the feedbacks that we received. I wrote a book, together with Roberto, on the Azure Data Platform, and it will be published soon. It has been a big effort and I literally spent days and nights of my personal time on that, I hope you will like it, once published. I have a lot of people to thank for the support, I will write an article once the book will be available.March 2018 - Microsoft Digital Week (Milano) – One entire week dedicated to technology, hosted by Microsoft in the Microsoft House. I presented together with my friend and colleague Diego a session on cloud and artificial intelligence, describing the work that we are doing for our customersApril 2018 – Data Platforms 2018 (Phoenix) - I will present a session on Azure Data Lake. I have never been to Arizona before, so I will also try to spend some time to be a tourist there. April 2018 – Global Azure Bootcamp 2018 (Verona) – I will present the new version of Azure Data Factory, that introduces a few interesting features for ETL scenarios.That’s all for now, I am planning some additional activities for communities, and I will use them as an excuse to publish another blog post, hope soon Ciao!Francesco@francedit

my session on Azure Data Lake @ Global Azure Bootcamp 2017

  I had the opportunity, few days ago, to deliver a session on Azure Data Lake at the Global Azure Bootcamp 2017, in Pordenone. Of course I’ve enjoyed the experience, conferences are always a great opportunity to share and learn from others. I am publishing (I know I’m late, 3 weeks have passed ) the slides that I’ve presented, you could find them below,     Grazie, ciao! Francesco @francedit
