Azure Data factory is a great tool for moving and transforming data between different storage and database mechanisms in Azure.
A common scenario, and one that’s easy to use and setup, is to import data from a CSV file into SQL Azure or CosmosDb. In an on-premise world you could use a BULK import statement to perform this action, however as you move to SQL Azure and need to start hooking into other Azure services can be a bit more complex.
Coder, Hacker or Developer - which do you think best sums you up? I’ll wager that most would consider themselves a ‘Developer’.
But in my many years experience - from learning the basics of coding, to my present day role of Architect and teacher/mentor - I’ve come to the conclusion that actually the three titles are all part of the career path in software development.
For me the titles perform a very good job of defining the role, but I feel the perceptions associated with each can be misleading.
