In-person Workshop: dbt Mesh & dbt Semantic Layer (Wellington)

About the Workshop

Join us for an exclusive in-person workshop in Wellington, as we get hands on with our latest dbt Cloud features: dbt Semantic Layer, dbt Mesh, and dbt Explorer.

The main highlights will discuss how dbt Mesh opens the opportunity for a managble distributed architecture, enabling seamless collaboration across multiple dbt projects.
