Simplifying Big Data

Stockholm Hadoop User Group


LEVEL: Intermediate

Data lake and Data lake Analytics

In this session we start with the importance of building a Data Lake, to nurturing its potential with Hadoop and other analytics options. We go a bit deeper and cover the basic components of the Azure Data Lake Analytics and Azure Data Lake Store.

Patterns of big data applications with a Data Lake Store

In this sessions we discuss various patterns for ingesting data, building big data analytics pipelines and developing applications involving a Data Lake Store. We will also look in to how you can connect various analytics platforms such as Hive, Pig, Spark, R and Azure Data Lake Analytics with data that resides in the Azure Data Lake Store.

U-SQL - Simplifying Big data processing

In this session we will talk about a new language called U-SQL to make Big data processing easy. U-SQL unifies the declarative power of SQL and the extensibility provided by a modern programming language to make writing custom processing of big data easy. It also unifies processing over all data – structured, semi-structured and unstructured data – and queries over both local data and remote SQL data sources.
