Synapse Data Flows - Will Citizen ETL Replace the Data Engineer?

We're in the middle of a data lake boom, with companies investing huge amounts in new lake-based data platforms, and all of the engineering that comes with it. But what if you don't want to learn python? What if your data experts aren't even comfortable with SQL? How do we bring data transformation to the people who understand the business?

Synapse Data Flows is a low code drag and drop "citizen ETL" tool, but under the hood it uses the incredibly powerful Apache Spark clusters to interpret and execute your transformations. But how far can you take it? Is this the death of SQL and Python, or are Mapping Data Flows just intended for lightweight projects?

In this session we'll talk about what Mapping Data Flows can do, what it can't do and how far you can take them in building a data platform framework
