My break time browsing list for 26th Nov

·194 words·1 min

This week has been a good mix of working on a custom python library, building pipelines and planning further CI/CD pipelines for tech beyond Data Factory. I also published the first few posts in a series on CI/CD for Azure Data Factory. PS Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US!

Here’s what I’ve been reading and watching this week:

Advancing Spark - Databricks SQL Analytics & Power BI

by Simon Whiteley

Follow @MrSiWhiteley

Simon does a great job of summing up how we connect Power BI to the new SQL Analytics, announced by Databricks this month. He covers some caveats and the new features available in Databricks, lots of really good detail as always Simon! This looks great and I can’t wait to get my hands on the preview. Thanks again Simon

Azure Synapse Source Control (preview)

by Mark Pryce-Maher

Follow @MarkPM_MSFT

I spotted the source control options just landing today and then Mark released a great video (before Simon Whiteley) on setting it up so I had to include it. Thanks Mark

Last-Minute Thanksgiving | Basics with Babish

Some relevant food to finish off the day. Yum!

This week’s list is a little late as I wanted to make a last-minute addition of Shane’s post at the top there, just published yesterday.
