🗺️Guide: Synapse Spark ✨ – Getting Started

Pls feel free to share with others and spread the word.

Step 1 watch this video

Step 2 skim through these slides for more context:

  1. Coming soon…

The rest is all hands-on stuff – if you get stuck at any point lmk.

Step 3 do this learning path:

Perform data engineering with Azure Synapse Apache Spark Pools – Learn | Microsoft Docs

Step 4 do these 4 Spark tutorials

Tutorial: Create Apache Spark job definition in Synapse Studio – Azure Synapse Analytics | Microsoft Docs

Step 5 do the ML tutorials.

At the very least, I strongly recommend doing this one. Visualize data with Apache Spark – Azure Synapse Analytics | Microsoft Docs

Step 6 do the notebooks in the knowledge center. Note: I’d stick to Scala and PySpark to keep it simple.

Open a synapse workspace >  Home > Knowledge center > Browse gallery > click Notebooks (Go wild!)

These are very popular:

  1. Boston house price prediction
  2. Getting Started with Delta Lake

By this point you’d be a Synapse Spark rockstar, ready to migrate any ADB notebook.
