Presentation Overview
The Data Vault 2.0 method uses a small set of building
blocks to model your data warehouse using defined table structures
such as Hubs, Links and Satellites. This standard structure allows
data to be loaded using templated SQL derived from dbt. dbtvault
provides configuration files in yaml, as well as templates
written in Jinja to load data into the data vault. This
method of development leads to better quality code,
fewer mistakes, and improves productivity of your teamTopics Included:
