Orchestrate data workflows w/ Prefect

Mar 15, 2023

It's one thing to build a data stack. It's another to orchestrate it.

Plus, most modern stacks consist of many different tools which makes it all the more challenging.

Fortunately, there are tools designed to address this exact issue (task orchestration) and make our lives as data engineers easier.

So in today's video, I want to show you how to use a great open-source task orchestration tool called Prefect.


Prefect is a tool I've personally used on recent consulting projects to automate data workflows and have started to really enjoy using.

By the end of this video you'll understand what Prefect is all about and how you can easily start using it in your own data stack.


What will you learn?

  • What Prefect is & how data teams use it
  • How to create your first data workflow
  • How to run workflows on Prefect Cloud (for free)
