Coalesce 2023 brought the dbt community together
We’re so energized by the dbt Community coming together, tackling challenges and sharing successes at Coalesce 2023 last week. Whether you joined us online, in San Diego, London, or Sydney, or you’re catching up on our announcements and sessions now, we’re grateful you’re here.
Here’s a breakdown of what happened at Coalesce 2023 (and you can also read dbt Labs founder Tristan Handy’s recap of Coalesce):
dbt Cloud new features
Make sure to check out the opening keynote. Tristan Handy and Luis Maldonado lay out the challenges of complexity our customers face, and how dbt Cloud allows data teams to remain agile, maintain quality and consistency across a wide assortment of data products, to help teams deliver more value from data. Be sure to watch Luis’ conversation with the team from Fifth Third Bank Kayleigh Lavorini, VP - Director of Product Ownership, Data Strategy, and Ben Rottinghaus, SVP, Senior Director, Data Engineering about their journey to scale their data practice with dbt Cloud.

Success stories from the dbt Community
There are so many great sessions of dbt Community members sharing their work. With representatives from Hubspot, the NBA, Rivian, Roche, Surfline, and on and on, no matter the size of your organization, Coalesce provides learning to bring to your data team (whether you’re the entire data team, you work for the largest organizations in the world, and anywhere in between).
Maybe you connect with stories of migrating from a legacy architecture to the modern data stack. How about a playbook on how healthcare companies uses modern data technologies to drive decision-making? Maybe you’re curious about implementing dbt in the public sector?
