Presentation Abstract

I bet you thought all the cool kids were the "data scientists"... Be even cooler and be a data engineer! You can't have any predictions or cool visualizations without having the data in a useful form. In this session we will use Azure Databricks with Spark SQL to transform data and put it into a form that BI tools can handle with ease. Come see how you can enable data scientists and be part of the cool kid club!
