🗣️Presentation #1: Using dbt to drive DataOps on a Data Science balanced team

Description: Walking through how we use dbt & DataOps in Home Depot Services Data Science to take a systematic, modular approach to data for ML. We take a foundation-first approach in the AI Hierarchy of Needs, using dbt to build the foundational data so Data Scientists can “SELECT * FROM some_ideal_clean_and_pristine.table_that_you_think_exists”, to minimize need for data cleaning in Pandas. We’re a balanced team of data engineers, data scientists, and product managers, building Data, ML, and Analytics products that feed into systems & reporting to drive action by our field sales & install workforce.

Speaker bio: Meet Brent Brewington, a data scientist at Home Depot working on building analytics and ML products for Outside Sales & Install Operations. Passionate about Lean Mgt and DataOps, Brent started the company's #data-engineering channel and hosts a monthly book club. Outside of work, Brent plays hockey & cello, enjoys backpacking trips, and loves to travel and try new restaurants with his wife.
