Gaurav Malhotra joins Scott Hanselman to show how wrangling data flows in Azure Data Factory.

This provides  a code-free, serverless environment that simplifies data preparation in the cloud and scales to any data size with no infrastructure management required.

It uses the industry-leading Power Query data preparation technology (also used in Power Platform dataflows, Excel, and Power BI) to prepare and shape the data. Built to handle all the complexities and scale challenges of big data integration, wrangling data flows enable use Apache Spark execution to help you easily prepare data at scale.

.NET developers have been taking advantage of dependency injection (DI) to make their code easier to test and manage.

The latest update to Azure Functions v2 now has support for registering services with DI.

In this episode, Fabio Cavalcante from the Azure Functions team joins explains how this feature works.

Matias Quaranta joins Scott Hanselman to share some best practices for creating serverless geo-distributed applications with Azure Cosmos DB. With the native integration between Azure Cosmos DB and Azure Functions, you can create database triggers, input bindings, and output bindings directly from your Azure Cosmos DB account. Using Azure Functions and Azure Cosmos DB, you can create and deploy event-driven serverless apps with low-latency access to rich data for a global user base

Recorded live at Build 2019, Asavari Tayal joins Scott Hanselman to take a closer look at Python support in Azure Functions, which provides accelerated development and serverless hosting of event-driven applications. Python is a great fit for data manipulation, machine learning, scripting, and automation scenarios. Building these solutions using serverless Azure Functions can take away the burden of managing the underlying infrastructure, so you can move fast and focus on the differentiating business logic of your applications
