Speaker & Presentation Details

🎤 dbt For Progress: Using dbt + Data Engineering for November's Election
Jason Ganz, Chief Technology Officer, Data for Progress

Data for Progress is a progressive think tank focused on using data to drive progressive change. Their main service to the movement is polling and public opinion data. This talk will show how:
- dbt helps them track their KPIs over time and by group
- dbt allows them to ensure that different types of complex surveys are accurate and representative
- a culture of data engineering + analytics engineering — over fancy machine — learning has allowed us to drive maximum impact

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.
