Fun With KQL – New Pluralsight Course! Kusto Query Language: Beginning Operators


I’ve just published a new course at Puralsight, Kusto Query Language: Beginning Operators. This course is the second in Pluralsight’s Kusto Query Language Learning Path.

The Kusto Query Language can be used to retrieve and analyze data, not only in your own Azure Data Clusters, but for the health and status of your Azure-hosted infrastructure as well.

In this course, Kusto Query Language: Beginning Operators, you’ll learn the basic set of Kusto operators needed to author effective, useful queries.

First, you’ll learn to search across tables. Next, you’ll discover how to limit the data being output, as well as to limit the columns of data being returned.

Finally, you’ll explore how to add calculated columns to your query results. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills to write queries to answer a majority of your needs.

If you don’t have a Pluralsight subscription, there is a way to watch for free. Just go to my list of courses on Pluralsight . At the top is a Try For Free button you can use to get a free 10 day subscription to Pluralsight, with which you can watch my courses, or any other course on the site.

Kusto Query Language: Getting Started

If you missed it, I have a previous course in the learning path, Kusto Query Language: Getting Started.

The Kusto Query Language (KQL) is becoming increasingly important in the world of Azure.

In this course, Kusto Query Language: Getting Started, you’ll learn foundational knowledge of the Kusto Query Language.

First, you’ll learn what KQL is and where it is used, exploring the Log Analytics environment. Next, you’ll discover the basic structure, comparing it to other query languages.

Finally, you’ll explore the definitions of terms used with KQL. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the necessary skills and knowledge of the Kusto Query Language and the environments it is used in to begin authoring your own Kusto Queries.

You can also see this course for free, if you take advantage of the free trial described in the previous section.


As I write this, I have just completed recording the third course in the series, Kusto Query Language: Scalar Operators. It should be published around the end of January 2023.

I hope you enjoy the courses! And stay tuned to the blog, as I will be continuing my ongoing series Fun With KQL.
