Azure Advent Calendar 2019: Azure Data Studio
Azure Advent Calendar 2019 #12 - Azure Data Studio

Azure Advent Calendar

About three months ago @Pixel_Robots and @gregor_suttie has invited the community to participate in Azure Advent Calendar.

I took a chance and proposed the Azure Data Studio topic. It might be the least cloudy of all Azure product/features, but it is the closet to my day-to-day work.

Azure Data Studio

As Microsoft describes it on their site:

Azure Data Studio is a cross-platform database tool for data professionals using the Microsoft family of on-premises and cloud data platforms on Windows, MacOS, and Linux.

Previously released under the preview name SQL Operations Studio, Azure Data Studio offers a modern editor experience with IntelliSense, code snippets, source control integration, and an integrated terminal. It is engineered with the data platform user in mind, with built in charting of query result sets and customizable dashboards.

In this short overview, I’m going to talk about some useful features of Azure Data Studio. I will start with tools to help writing code faster (Intellisense and Code Snippets), then will move to the Extensions that are expanding the possibilities of the tool. You’ll see how to add custom widgets to your dashboards. Finally, you’ll get a taste of what SQL Notebooks are.
