The previous workflow

Our current pipeline follows three main steps:

  • The features generation in BigQuery using DBT and Python
  • The extraction of these features into parquet files using Bash and Python scripts

In the recent DEVELOPER WEEK 2021 I was able to attend several exciting talks within the 3-day Javascript conference.
