In this blog post, I show you how easy it is to start an Azure Synapse Analytics workspace (instance) and use its Serverless SQL Pool engine to analyze sample publicly available data. As you will read shortly, Azure Synapse Analytics provides many compute engines for different use cases. The easiest one to get started with is its Serverless SQL Pool since every Azure Synapse Analytics instance comes with one already created and ready to use. It also does not have any cost unless if you use it which makes it very attractive to those who have a limited Azure budget.
