Data Warehousing for Fun and Profit & Git Extras
This is a free event, open to all. There will be some beers, tea, coffee, soft drinks, and food provided. We will have vegetarian food, if you have any other dietary requirements or questions please send us a message. _______________________________ ★ The talks ✩ Data Warehousing for Fun and Profit - Mark Taylor Learn the advantages of having a Data Warehouse, what the hell a star schema is, and how we designed and built our solution with a custom PHP7 & Symfony 4 powered ETL (Extract Transform Load) process leveraging parallel processing. Our solution runs on the highly scalable Amazon Redshift in our production environment and uses Postgres for developement and testing. ✩ Git Extras - Jason Bruce-Halliwel (@JasonBruce88) Git is a great Version Control System, we all probably use it everyday without thinking what else it can be used for apart from version control. With some plugins, a few extra commands and the use of one or two tools, it can improve your development skills and general day-to-day working life. _______________________________ ★ Timings 18:30 – Turn up, have a drink, a snack, and a chat (food, soft drinks, beer, coffee) 19:00 – Git Extras - Jason Bruce-Halliwel 19:30 – A little break 19:35 – Data Warehousing for Fun and Profit - Mark Taylor 20:10ish – Pop over to the pub for a chat and a drink _______________________________ ★ Sponsors Our sponsors make this monthly event possible, so please take the time to check them out, and thank them for their support. • Bruntwood - Platform ( – Platform is a reinvention of a Leeds landmark offering workspace for businesses of all sizes, right at the heart of the city.
