DevOps for Databricks

Applying DevOps to Databricks can be a daunting task. In this talk this will be broken down into bite size chunks. Common DevOps subject areas will be covered, including CI/CD (Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment), IAC (Infrastructure as Code) and Build Agents.

We will explore how to apply DevOps to Databricks (in Azure), primarily using Azure DevOps tooling. As a lot of Spark/Databricks users are Python users, will will focus on the Databricks Rest API (using Python) to perform our tasks.
