There were several interesting Data & AI announcements that came out of Microsoft Build 2021. I put together this summary of 11 interesting and includes links to both the announcements and other follow-on information.
This article is a summary newsletter covering some of the news, announcements, new resources published by Microsoft this month in the Azure Data & AI space, including Azure Dev Ops and Synapse integrations walkthroughs.
Many of us are working from our home offices we also can come together for Microsoft Ignite as registration is now open for the March 2-4 2021 event. As Data sessions are announced, I will add ones that sound interesting to this post and links to the recordings once they are available.
Of all the Azure solution architecture elements, the Data & AI product set tends to have the most updates to the platform and the certifications. In a recent Microsoft blog post the Microsoft team announced some changes, but also some new exams.
As of June 21, 2019 the exams, Exam DP-200: Implementing an Azure Data Solution and Exam DP-201: Designing an Azure Data Solution have changed. The exams look to be more focused in order to differentiate between a data engineer role from a database administrator role.
