Data Integration is complex and helps organizations to combine data and complex business processes in hybrid data environments. The increase in volume, variety and velocity of data has led to delays in monitoring and reacting to issues. Organizations want to reduce the risk of data integration activity failures and the impact to other downstream processes.

Manual approaches to monitoring data integration projects are inefficient and time consuming. As a result, organizations want to have automated processes to monitor and manage data integration projects to remove inefficiencies and catch issues before they affect the entire system.

In this episode, Gaurav Malhotra joins Scott Hanselman to show how organizations can now improve operational productivity by creating alerts on data integration events (success/failure) and proactively monitor their Azure Data Factories.

For two weeks each year, college students take over a massive stadium and fill it with fighting drones, plastic ammo, and rapt spectators. This is Robomasters, held in Shenzhen by DJI, the world’s leading drone maker. In part two of Hello World Shenzhen, Bloomberg Businessweek’s Ashlee Vance goes inside the world of Nerf-style robo-warfare to spotlight the kinds of innovation that have kept DJI, at the forefront of a booming market, and demonstrates why you may not want him on your squad.

In this video, Noelle LaCharite talks about the new capability that allows developers to deploy some of our cognitive services as containers! Process data in the cloud or on device at the edge, the choice is yours!

Armon Dadgar (@armon), HashiCorp CTO and co-founder joins Aaron Schlesinger (@arschles) to school him on all things service meshes. You’ll understand what a service mesh actually does, when and why it makes sense to use them, the role of observability, and the differences between data planes and control planes (and what’s relevant to app developers).

 Armon makes concepts real with specific examples and analogies, Aaron sees how to easily apply it to his favorite project (Kubernetes, of course) and they sign off with their favorite resources, so you can apply to your apps. 

Here’s a riveting documentary from the BBC about Ada Lovelace, the “Countess of Computing.” It’s a fascinating look at the contradicting world views of her parents and how their subsequent separation helped form a young Ada into a mathematical superstar. It’s also offers a glimpse of the Victorian Computer Age (SteamPunk?) we almost got.
