dbt Meetup at Bowery Farming

Details

Come join us at Bowery Farming (https://boweryfarming.com/) for the first dbt Meetup of the new year!

This event is open to all folks working with data—while we'll predominantly focus on people's experience with dbt, we're also very interested in broader topics related to analytics engineering, such as data stacks, data ops, modeling, testing, and team structures.

Doors open at 6:30pm, for a 6:45 start! We'll bring the food and drinks, just make sure you have your ID to sign in!
