About me

I've led dbt implementations at companies ranging from Fortune 100 to as small as greenfield startups. Today, I run my own analytics consulting company and work full-time on dbt projects as a solution architect.

I've also taught dbt to hundreds of thousands of people through my YouTube channel.

Like many others, I'm originally a self taught developer and come from a traditional on-premise/ETL data background.

This Guide is a consolidated list of some of the most important topics I wish I understood better when first getting started with dbt. 

I hope it helps you on your journey learning about this game-changing tool.
