Data Modeling for the Modern Warehouse
This course provides an introduction to data modeling using concepts of the Kimball methodology. Students will learn to build scalable business intelligence systems given source data realities and business requirements. You will develop a vocabulary to describe the different elements of business processes, create artifacts to elucidate and document the business intelligence system, and learn how to handle common data modeling use cases. Though we have not designed the course to be tool specific, there will be references to dbt throughout.

Course success stories
Learn together and share experiences with other industry professionals
Every analyst should take this course to understand how the data they query is modeled.
I enjoyed spending time getting to know data models with Miles and everyone in the course. I got to learn more about data modeling, its use in many business-focused exercises, and perspectives on its impact to real-world scenarios. I think what made this course unique was the added benefit of sharing this course with like-minded professionals and learning from them.
I attended a data-modeling lecture by Miles where he went above and beyond to deliver a stellar learning experience for myself and 100+ other data professionals. He clearly understands the modern data stack and how to effectively model data in 2022. After the lecture, I followed up with several questions regarding career advice and was incredibly grateful when he took the time to understand where I was before thoughtfully answering each one.
Miles’ contributions on data modeling for the dbt course have been so valuable and are always a hit each time he presents—he has a very practical and modern approach on how to model data in 2022!
