ABOUT THE TALK

dbt is great for batch, but it can only approximate transforming streaming data. Together with the dbt community, we’ve worked on an adapter that allows you to transform your streaming data in real-time using Materialize as your data warehouse. What does this mean in practice? The first time you run a dbt model on top of Materialize…well, you never have to run it again! No matter how much or how frequently your data arrives, your model will stay up to date. No matter when you query your view, it will always return a fresh answer. Excited? Skeptical? Cautiously optimistic? Join us to see it for yourself as we walk you through a demo!
