**Hamish Watson - DevOps Alchemist will be presenting KQL - the next query language you need to learn:**
Azure is the leading platform for many companies, and to manage your databases and other infrastructure you need to have insights into what is happening.
You need to be able to query the Azure platform, to not only understand your infrastructure but also to leverage monitoring and analytics to react to operational changes occurring in it.
This session will introduce you to the Kusto Query Language (KQL) which will allow you to query a variety of Azure resources. The session will also show how machine learning and time series analytics can help advance your insights into you Azure services.
