Data Platform Development - the Git Way

When moving from a traditional VCS (like TFVC/TFS, Subversion etc.) to Git, teams often encounter the same questions and difficulties. Last October, Koos van Strien shared some thoughts about using Git for your Data Platform development

The session is live recorded at Data Saturday Holland 2019. Koos covered some things you need to know about working with Git when you're working on data projects (like Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence or Data Engineering). It was a great honor to present there!
