New Azure Data Factory self-paced hands-on lab for UI

A few weeks back, we announced the public preview release of the new browser-based V2 UI experience for Azure Data Factory. We’ve since partnered with Pragmatic Works, who have been long-time experts in the Microsoft data integration and ETL space, to create a new set of hands on labs that you can now use to learn how to build those DI patterns using ADF V2.

In that repo, you will find data files and scripts in the Deployment folder. There are also lab manual folders for each lab module as well an overview presentation to walk you through the labs. Below you will find more details on each module.

The repo also includes a series of PowerShell and database scripts as well as Azure ARM templates that will generate resource groups that the labs need in order for you to successfully build out an end-to-end scenario, including some sample data that you can use for Power BI reports in the final Lab Module 9.

Here is how the individual labs are divided:

Lab 1 – Setting up ADF and Resources, Start here to get all of the ARM resource groups and database backup files loaded properly. Lab 2 – Lift
