This article looks like clickbait; however, I found it very helpful in increasing my understanding reguarding the relationship between dbt with both Snowflake and Big Querry.
What if Snowflake did buy dbt?
Muji wrote back in September last year at Hhhypergrowth.com-
dbt creates a transformation layer within the data warehouse, letting teams collaboratively deploy code in a CI/CD-driven workflow.
dbt’s goal is to help combine data engineering and data analyst roles into what it calls analytics engineers, who then hand off the final analytical datasets directly to business users for self-service analytics. Akin to an app development pipeline in DevOps, dbt allows creating repeatable code-driven data workflows for DataOps (via CI/CD pipelines across development, testing, and production stages) to transform raw data into analytics-ready datasets.
Me here: I’d like to think I knew what Muji was talking about when I added this to my notes and that this is a big deal. But, now I’m thinking…I’m not sure I did understand it.
Thanks for multiple people generous enough to share their understanding with me,
