Dynamic Workflow Orchestration with Azure Data Factory and Prefect Dynamic Workflow Orchestration with Azure Data Factory and Prefect
Prefect is an open-source general-purpose dataflow automation tool that lets users orchestrate workflows with Python code. We'll go over some of the features that make Prefect the perfect complement to Azure Data Factory in building dynamic workflows. These features include task mapping, non-Azure resource tasks, and robust state handling. Prefect is also designed to run on user-managed infrastructure and provides an easy way to manage on-premise execution of workflows through Data Factory.

Getting Traction with GitHub Actions Getting Traction with GitHub Actions
DevOps goals have stayed the same over the year, but our tools, infrastructure, and operating models have changed. This talk will cover how existing projects are using GitHub Action to hope that all projects, despite their size, can benefit collectively from knowledge sharing. The benefit of Actions is that the majority are shareable and open source. Plan to leave this talk with ideas on how you can automate new portions of your software development pipeline for production.

Storage used to be so basic - Basically Available, Soft-state, Eventually-consistent Storage used to be so basic - Basically Available, Soft-state, Eventually-consistent
Data reliability plays a crucial role in the decision-making across an organization and the quality of applications. The same way software engineers apply automatic testing to new code, data engineers should continuously test newly ingested data to ensure they meet quality requirements. In this talk, Einat and Adi will discuss the power of having a Git-like experience for data and how open-source project lakeFS provides this using versioning concepts to fully automated CI/CD process for data.
