Speakers:
Katie Claiborne, Data Scientist, Cityblock Health
Tanjin Panna, Site Reliability Engineer, Cityblock Health

Presentation:
Improving Reliability and Orchestration with dbt

Description:
Last year, the Cityblock team rolled out their dbt project. Happy days, right? Not quite. Occasionally, the dreaded slack message "the dashboards are stale," would greet them in the morning and their team was challenged to find solutions to prevent this from happening. In this talk, Katie and Tanjin will run through some of the ways their team improved the orchestration of their data stack to increase the uptime of their dashboards, so they could start their mornings on the right track! Stack: BigQuery, dbt, Airflow, Looker

Speakers:
Nick McCormick, Senior Manager, Analytics Engineering, Bombas🧦
Kevin Kong, Business Intelligence Analyst, Bombas🧦

Presentation:
Driving Data Curiosity with Analytics Engineering

Description:
When our founders wanted to make the most comfortable socks in the history of feet, they started with the very first data point at Bombas – "Socks are the #1 most requested item at a homeless shelter". From there, we've grown our data tremendously, and the Analytics Engineering team has been a key part of maintaining a data-driven culture.

dbt is a command line tool that speaks the preferred language of data analysts everywhere—SQL. With dbt, analysts take ownership of the entire analytics engineering workflow, from writing data transformation code to deployment and documentation.
