Microsoft created a new language called U-SQL to make big data processing easier on Azure Data Lake. U-SQL provides the power of SQL and the extensibility of C# to make processing of any data - structured or unstructured - easier. U-SQL can be run over your Data Lake without a dedicated HDInsight cluster. It can even query blob storage and Azure SQL database. We'll show you why this offering is so compelling, the development tooling, language capabilities, and use cases.
We'll also spend time networking and discussing general Hadoop questions relevant to data professionals who want to learn more about Big Data.
