Why we Coalesce

The practice of analytics engineering was born out of a community of data professionals that wanted a better way to work. dbt standardized the analytics engineering workflow, but where it’s applied, by whom, and how—must be continually re-examined by the people doing this work every day.

If dbt is where data practitioners meet to transform data, Coalesce is where they meet to transform the way they work.

Hosted by dbt Labs

dbt Labs is on a mission to help data practitioners create and disseminate organizational knowledge. Since developing the data transformation framework, dbt, we've seen more than 30,000 data practitioners join the dbt Community, in pursuit of a new standard for developing data—analytics engineering.

dbt Labs is fortunate to host these practitioners at our annual conference, Coalesce, for the third year running.
