SQL Saturday #454 – Turin, October 10th 2015

  I will have the pleasure to speak at SQL Saturday #454 in Turin, in October 10th. It is an incredible opportunity for two reasons: 1- it has an international format, with well known speakers coming from all over Europe, and the agenda is really great! 2 – it is a good reason to visit Expo exhibition, which is only 45min away from the conference place Well, there is a third reason, the participation at the event is FREE! :) My talk will be on Azure Data Factory, and below you could find the session abstract and the link to the full agenda as well “Join this session if you want to see how Azure Data Factory, a web based SaaS service, could help you to create, orchestrate, and manage data-processing pipelines over a range of transformation services and diverse data sources. Data Sources could be relational and non relational, both on-premises and in the cloud, and custom code could be also used. Presentation will be complemented with demos in order to clarify the aspects of a potential adoption of this service.” AGENDA : Ciao! Francesco @francedit
