Nick will cover the principles and origin of Dagster. Dagster is a new type of workflow engine: a data orchestrator. Moving beyond just managing the ordering and physical execution of data computations, Dagster considers the entire data application lifecycle. Practitioners in Dagster build data-aware dependency graphs designed for local development and testing; deploy those graphs to a multi-tenant, cloud-native orchestration engine; and then monitor and observe the data assets produced by those computations.
This talk will also cover our new major release, which makes significant changes to our core API that dramatically improve usability and ergonomics.
