I bet your last mouse-click it’s the one at the bottom of the list, poor old (or should I say young) Data Activator. It’s the juvenile sibling at the Fabric dinner table that gets its voice drowned out by its stronger Synapse brothers and more eloquent Power BI sister. That’s ironic considering that Monitoring ..read more

Don’t you???). Revert to previous code versions (very rarely happens, testing is thorough and things never break….). Use Git Branches for group coding collaboration (or maybe make changes directly on the master branch? Nah, never seen that happen!). Future Microsoft Fabric projects must have vers ..read more

Spark Configuration Simplified: Maximizing Efficiency in Microsoft Fabric Environments
SharePoint Europe
by Ella Murphy
5d ago
Spark configurations are critical in controlling the behavior of your data processing tasks. These configurations influence various aspects of Spark’s performance, from memory management to execution behavior. Typically, these settings are adjusted at the session level, meaning they apply only to the specific Spark session in which they are set. This granularity allows for fine-tuning of data operations, ensuring that each task is optimized for its specific requirements. One of the challenges in using Spark is the repetitive nature of configuring each notebook or session individually. For ..read more
