WWDVC 2022 is almost here – Are you ready to “up” your Data Vault game?

Vermont is beautiful in May!

As the world is coming out of its pandemic induced isolation, its time we all got back to meetin’ and greetin’ our colleagues and peers in person. One of the things the last two years has taught us it that humans are social animals. We like being around other humans and some variety is good for our mental and emotional health (not that we don’t all love the families that we have been locked up with during this time). Not only that, but we learn and communicate better face to face. So much of our communication is nonverbal and just can’t be seen behind a mask, or a Zoom square.

Are you ready to get back out there, network with your peers, meet some Data Vault Masters, and work on your professional development around Data Vault? If you are then it is time to secure your seat at the 2022 World Wide Data Vault Consortium (WWDVC). As in past years, it will be held near the end of May at the lovely, and family friendly, Stoweflake Lodge in Stowe, Vermont.

Check out all the details, including HOLs, keynotes, and session topics, about WWDVC 2022 in this post by Cindi at DataRebels WWDVC 2022 is almost here

If you are already planning to go, you can just register here.

Keep on modeling!

Better Data Modeling: Agile Data Engineering

You asked for it, you got it!

Ever since I wrote my Kindle book on Agile Data Engineering and Data Vault 2.0, many, many people have asked me to provide it in a hardcopy format. Well, I finally managed to find time to convert that ebook into a paperback book (I even corrected a few errors in the process).

If you forgot what the book was about, here is the description:

This book will give you a short introduction to Agile Data Engineering for Data Warehousing and Data Vault 2.0. I will explain why you should be trying to become Agile, some of the history and rationale for Data Vault 2.0, and then show you the basics for how to build a data warehouse model using the Data Vault 2.0 standards.In addition, I will cover some details about the Business Data Vault (what it is) and then how to build a virtual Information Mart off your Data Vault and Business Vault using the Data Vault 2.0 architecture.So if you want to start learning about Agile Data Engineering with Data Vault 2.0, this book is for you.

So here it is – Introduction to Agile Data Engineering – now available to purchase on Amazon.

Get your copy now. Next time you see me at an event, I will be happy to sign it for you. 🙂

Enjoy!
