Sent 08 Sep 2021


๐Ÿ‘‹ Hi there! 

We know you missed these digests!


The dbt Community Newsletters are coming back with a ๐Ÿ’ฅ. For the month of September, the dbt Community Newsletter is going to go out weekly, on Wednesdays and with a slightly updated format. All your old favorite digests are below, alongside a few new fun highlights:

  • ๐Ÿ† Shoutouts to humans of the dbt Community who made exceptional contributions in the past week;
  • ๐Ÿ“ฆ Package ecosystem updates; 
  • ๐Ÿข Job postings that are no more than a week old! 

We want to hear from you: reply to this e-mail or come chat in #community-strategy if you have feedback on the new format or the new frequency. 


And now without further ado, this week's newsletter ๐Ÿ“ฃ
