dbt How-to Hour: Keeping on top of your dbt documentation with dbt-sugar
dbt How-to Hour is a place for you to learn interesting ways to implement dbt.
Trade secrets with analytics engineers mastering the tool. Pick up a new skill that will help you work smarter. Connect with data professionals at different points in their dbt journeys.

Think of it as a playground for dbt Learn alumni and community members that have completed the fundamentals course.

Expect an informal discussion with a few slides, and lots of code. Bring your questions, opinions, and thinking cap.

We all agree that good documentation has no price. We can also agree that remembering to write it and keep it up to date can be a pain — but doesn’t need to be that way!

dbt-sugar is an opinionated CLI tool that helps users of dbt to maintain consistent documentation and enforce tests throughout their dbt projects.

Bastien and Virginia, the creators of this package, will walk you through a *very* alpha demo of the tool, share their roadmap for the future, and share tips for making your documentation life a bit sweeter.

- Bastien Boutonnet, Senior, Data Scientist, TripActions
- Virginia López-Gil Pérez, Data engineer, TripActions

The chat will take place in the #how-to-hours-2021-03-23 channel of dbt Slack:
