Eduard van Valkenburg does a bit of data validation:
Great Expectations (Great Expectations Home Page • Great Expectations) is a popular Python-based OSS tool to validate data that comes into your data estate. And for me, validating incoming data is best done file by file, as the files arrive! On Azure there is no better platform for that then Azure Functions. I love the serverless nature of Functions and with the triggers available for arriving blobs, as well as HTTP, event grid events, queues and others. There are some great patterns that allow you to build event-driven data architectures. We also now have the Python v2 framework for Azure Functions available, which makes the developer experience even better. So, let’s go through how to get it running.
This looks really interesting and tying it in to Azure Functions is a good idea assuming that the checks don’t run for too long.Leave a Comment
