Tutorials and other documentation will show you how to set up and manage data pipelines, as well as move and transform data for analysis. Check out these quickstarts for .NET, Python, REST API, and more.
Continuous integration and deployment to Azure App Service with Jenkins: This tutorial sets up continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) of a sample Java web app developed with the Spring Boot framework to Azure App Service Web App on Linux using Jenkins.
More and more large companies are open sourcing their own software. In this live discussion and Q&A on January 24, some of our favorite community members will talk about why they made the call to open source, why it’s paid off and what they learned along the way. Learn more here.
Creating custom applications on Azure HDInsight: Azure HDInsight is a fully-managed cloud service that makes it easy, fast, and cost-effective to process massive amounts of data, using the most popular open source frameworks, like Hadoop, Spark, Hive, LLAP, Kafka, Storm, R and more. In this video, you’ll learn how to create applications for your custom needs, distributing the applications within your organization or share them back with the open source community.
