What you’ll learn
Welcome to this course, Learn DBT from Scratch. DBT lets you build a system of transformations on your data, with tests, scheduled runs, multiple environments, flexibility, and more all without needing a team of engineers to set up and manage your workflow. By the end of this course, you will have:
set up DBT locally and on the cloud
connected DBT to Snowflake (or a data warehouse of your choice)
create your own SQL transformations on data
test your transformations
snapshot your data to keep track of how your data changes over time
learn DBT best practices
In this course, you’ll be presented with the summarized information you need so that you can quickly get DBT implemented in your data pipeline (or in a brand new, data warehouse).
Why you should learn DBT
DBT is not one of the first technical skills most Data Scientists or Analysts think to learn. It s not as exciting as machine learning algorithms, and it s not as easy to show off as a fancy data visualization.
But DBT is an absolutely fundamental skill for any Data Scientist or Analyst due to all of its capabilities. Because DBT is so flexible, there are almost an endless amount of ways you can integrate DBT into your data architecture. Some features that DBT provides you that all Data Scientists and Analysts should be using in their work include:
