Extract. Transform. ASSEMBLE!

Terry Mayfield

Oh hey! This Dev Talk has already happened. You can catch a video of the talk on YouTube.



Which superhero has the best chance to beat Thanos single-handedly? Where did we first meet the Incredible Hulk? We spend a lot of time discussing superheroes. Let’s analyze them! Python’s power and SQL Server’s elegance come together to build a superhero database and create heroic visualizations. I’m going to show you how to extract and stage data from a public API using Python, transform and populate a data mart in SQL Server, and then create powerful visualizations using a combination approach. We’ll focus on using good dimensional modeling techniques and prepping our data for more advanced analytics.


Tuesday, July 10th, 2018, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (talks at noon, every second Tuesday of the month)
