dbt is an open source data transformation tool maintained by Fishtown Analytics. In this session, Fishtown Analytics co-founder and dbt maintainer, Drew Banin, will introduce attendees to dbt and why it is used (and loved) by thousands of companies. The workshop will start with a 15 minute introduction to the dbt viewpoint and its place in the modern analytics stack. Next, Drew will walk through a 15 minute demo of dbt, introducing key functionality around data modeling, testing, and documentation. In the remaining hour, attendees can workshop dbt projects and explore how different modeling challenges can be solved by dbt.
Drew Banin has built event collection systems that scaled to billions of events per month, implemented Markov-based marketing attribution models on millions of dollars of marketing spend, and dreams in NetworkX graphs.
