WAAG - Part 4 Developing Big Data Solutions Hand-on Labs Missing


The WAAG - Part 4 Developing Big Data Solutions guide says:

If you want to try out these scenarios yourself, you can use the Hands-on Labs that are available separately for this guide. These labs contain all of the source code, scripts, and other items used in all of the scenarios; together with detailed step by step instructions on accomplishing each task in the scenarios. To explore these labs, download them from

Where are these labs ? I cannot find them anywhere ?

There's no HOL associated with this release. I'll remove the statement above to avoid causing any confusions. Can you tell me the link to the page where you found that paragraph please?

I cannot remember exactly which page I got that paragraph from, but there are many references in the guide and also in the accompanying videos on Channel 9 which cover the source files in close up detail for each of the four scenarios. I have painstakingly reconstructed the source files from the guide and the videos for the first 2 scenarios but I am struggling with Scenario 3: ETL automation. For example, in the online MSDN version of the guide ( there is the paragraph:

‘For the purpose of the example, to make it repeatable if you want to experiment with the code yourself, the source data is provided in a file named Lap.csv. The example console application reads this file to generate the source data for analysis.’

The Channel 9 videos clearly show the source code ( and also contain links to this CodePlex site and the MSDN version of the guide.

It would be very helpful if this source code could be obtained and made available somewhere as its absence tends to ‘hold up’ Microsoft developers progress on learning how to use these new technologies.

Thank you for the clarification. I agree that it's misleading. We'll modify them accordingly to make it clear there's no HOLs. Can you tell us the specific problem you're facing? We can help you to make it work.
