For those new to LogAnalytics, this session offers inspiration on how leveraging custom log data can provide significant value for desired state reporting, monitoring, and troubleshooting.

By the session's conclusion, you'll also have learned about a Powershell module, AzLogDcrIngestPS, which is recommended by Microsoft in the official Learn documentation and has surpassed 1 million downloads within its first year. During this session, you'll have the opportunity to hear from the module's creator, empowering you to become proficient in logging like a ninja.
