Are You Certifiable? 1st #DataVault 2.0 Bootcamp of the Year

A quick note for all the folks out there that have been contemplating diving deep into Dan Linstedt’s Data Vault 2.0 System of Business Intelligence.

Dan will be teaching a Data Vault 2.o Bootcamp in February! You can sign up here.

You’ve read the articles, read the blog posts (mine included), attended the talks at the conferences, maybe even read the Super Charge book…

Are you done trying to figure it out on your own?

Ready to not only learn how to do it right, but get certified as a Data Vault 2.0 Practitioner?

Well let’s get 2016 off to a great start and attend the 1st Data Vault 2.0 Bootcamp of 2016 in beautiful St. Albans, Vermont, taught by none other than the inventor of Data Vault, my good friend Dan Linstedt.

You could of course just buy the new book, and try it out on your own…

But if you are like me, you do much better when you can interact, face-to-face with a qualified instructor, ask the hard questions, and get the insights that will make you truly successful.

So why not invest in yourself and your future success? Go sign up now.

As an added incentive, Dan has added some brand new material.


Dan will be discussing DV2 on Hive / Hadoop, the benefits, pros and cons, some suggestions on how to build it and leverage it properly.  He will be talking about Satellites on HDFS, Hubs & Links on Hive.  He will discuss data modeling implications, and using SERDe definitions at query time.  This is the first time ever that this information will be presented in the DV2 class!

Make the commitment to a great 2016 now and go sign up before the class fills up. If you sign up before February 1st, you can save over $400!

To your success!

P.S. For you skiers, St. Albans is a short drive to both Stowe and Smuggler’s Notch – both great east coast ski areas and with the snow they just got the skiing will be epic. Go take the class, then reward yourself with a little weekend ski trip.

Event Details

Data Vault 2.0 Boot Camp & Private Certification, hosted and taught by me, The Data Warrior, in the beautiful Woodlands, Texas! (This is the same class as developed and taught by Dan Linstedt)

THIS IS A 3 DAY COURSE. The morning of the 4th day (Friday) will be offered as a 2 hour exam time for those that wish to stay and take the exam. Everyone will have the opportunity to study for a week (instead of taking it the morning of the 18th), and then take the exam on-line.

This class is a 3 day intensive course that covers all aspects of the Data Vault 2.0 System of Business Intelligence. It really teaches you how to be a general practitioner, and enables you to implement Data Vault 2.0 successfully within your organization. CDVP2 (Certified Data Vault 2.0 Practitioner) is available privately for those who complete this course.
