Collaborative Data Transformation with dbt Cloud
Countless data teams are writing and running data transformations today. But how is that work documented & tested? How do you collaborate, make updates and track dependencies? In this session, we’ll take a look at how dbt helps anyone who knows SQL take their team’s data workflow to the next level. We’ll also take a peek at what's coming next in dbt Cloud.
Lee is a pre-sales consultant who enjoys helping people solve their data challenges. After 6years in the BI space at Tableau, he now helps data teams use dbt Cloud to build, document, and test their own analytics pipelines.

Opening the Gates - when Data becomes “Ours”
With dbt, our data users are more empowered than they’ve ever been - to create, collaborate, and deploy data models in a repeatable way.
However, there’s still a gap to leap - how do we smooth the path for business experts to get involved?
Chris has built an open-source interactive data catalog, Tāngata, to explore this question. He will share his dbt journey so far, and demo the tool as a supplement to your dbt ecosystem.
Chris leads the Data Management capability at Trustpower; creating a central, reusable, and informative dataset across the business, encompassing generation and multi-utility retail business.
