Getting Started with dbt

Why dbt?

dbt™ is a transformation workflow that lets teams quickly and collaboratively deploy analytics code following software engineering best practices like modularity, portability, CI/CD, and documentation. Now anyone who knows SQL can build production-grade data pipelines.


Deploy safely using dev environments. Git-enabled version control enables collaboration and a return to previous states.


Test every model prior to production, and share dynamically generated documentation with all data stakeholders.


Write modular SQL models with SELECT statements and the ref() function– dbt handles the chore of dependency management.
