Azure Data Factory Interview Questions - Help me prepare!

Hi everyone,

I am preparing for an Azure Data Factory interview and I am looking for some help with the following questions:

  1. What is Azure Data Factory?
  2. What are the different components of Azure Data Factory?
  3. What are the different types of pipelines in Azure Data Factory?
  4. How do you create a linked service in Azure Data Factory?
  5. How do you create a dataset in Azure Data Factory?
  6. How do you create a pipeline in Azure Data Factory?
  7. How do you schedule a pipeline in Azure Data Factory?
  8. What are the different triggers in Azure Data Factory?
  9. What are the different monitoring options in Azure Data Factory?
  10. What are the best practices for using Azure Data Factory?

I have also attached some Python code that I wrote to calculate the factorial of a number. Can you help me understand how I can improve this code? I took reference from Azure Data Factory interview questions and answers.
Here is the Python code:

def factorial(n):
    if n == 0:
        return 1
        return n * factorial(n - 1)


The output of the code is 120.

I would really appreciate any help that you can provide. Thank you!

I think your factorial function looks fine, just make sure to handle illegal inputs like negative numbers
