About the instructor

Like many others, I started my data career using drag-and-drop tools and traditional databases.

Then I joined a team using dbt, Snowflake and GitHub and felt overwhelmed with how to actually use it. It was all so different.

Fast-forward to today and I now help Fortune 100 companies to greenfield startups implement dbt with modern workflows and cloud databases. 

I'm a dbt Certified Developer and have taught hundreds of thousands of people through my YouTube channel.

But this took years of practice, trial and error and learning on the job.

This course not only teaches you step-by-step how to use dbt, but shares tips, tricks and lessons based on my real-life experience as a Lead dbt developer.

You'll fast-track your learning, avoid common mistakes, and feel confident contributing to any project.

I hope to see you in the course!
