Deploying Your First dbt project with GitLab CI

Emilie Schario   

In this live-coding workshop, Emilie will deploy a dbt project using GitLab CI. Open source dbt is the T in ELT and is used to organize, cleanse, denormalize, filter, rename, and pre-aggregate the raw data in your warehouse so that it’s ready for analysis. In this tutorial, we will go from `init` to `run –target prod` in less than an hour, empowering attendees working in data to understand the ease of implementing a new dbt project. Along the way, we’ll talk about the benefits of ELT over ETL and why SQL is the answer to all of your transformation problems. Finally, we’ll use open source GitLab CI to deploy the project.
