AWS Dev Day

About the session

dbt is a data development framework that lets analysts and engineers collaborate on transformation workflows – using just their shared knowledge of SQL.

Through the application of software engineering best practices like modularity, version control, testing, and documentation, dbt helps teams produce data the entire organization can trust.

In this workshop, you’ll walk step-by-step through the process of getting set up on dbt Cloud while leveraging the warehousing prowess of Amazon Redshift. Starting from a blank canvas, you’ll work your way through the dbt development workflow, learning best practices as you build a mature analytics project that scales.
