Abstract: Big Data for the SQL Server Professional
What a SQL Server Professional needs to know about the Data Lake and the all up Microsoft Big Data story. Have you heard your company talking about Big Data and wondering what the options are for someone with a SQL Server background? We will discuss Lambda Architecture, unstructured data options such as Hadoop (HDInsight) and Data Lake. We will see Microsoft’s new U-SQL language in action and drill into Data Lake fundamentals. This will be tailored for the beginner, but Big Data experts will learn something alike.
