If you are about to embark on a Data Vault project this year, and not quite sure the best way to load your data into a Data Vault efficiently, I have a great opportunity for you.
Dan and Sanjay have been hard at work re-vamping the Learn Data Vault site and are now ready to relaunch with a brand new look and feel.
The first course out of the gate is the SQL Implementation course. This online course walks you through the details of implementing a Data Vault-based data warehouse using plain and simple SQL. These are the same techniques I have been successfully using for over 10 years on my Data Vault (and even Non-DV) projects. I learned them from Dan in my very first Data Vault class and have used them ever since.
They just work!
If you are building on a standard relational database platform (on premises or in the cloud), this class gives you all the patterns and code examples you need to move data into not only Hubs, Links, and Sats but your staging areas as well. It also includes the techniques for implementing very efficient change data capture (i.e., delta detection).
You can see the full outline for all the topics and modules here: http://training.learndatavault.com/products/courses/ldv_implementation_sql/
So the deal is that originally the Retail Price was $997. But right now with the re-launched site, this class is marked down to $797 for a short time (a savings of $200). This course has sold in the past for $1497 and they could raise it back up at anytime.

I asked Sanjay the same thing. This is what he told me:
- This is really a re-launch on a new platform and they really want to give it a workout.
- There may be some small errors on the site that they missed during QA. (The price will go up once they are sure it is completely error free)
- They need feedback on the new site to be sure it is the best it can be and this is the best way to get that feedback quickly – get people using the site!
- It’s Valentines Day!
