Building your First Data Contract using Open Source Tools


September 28, 2023    
15:30 - 16:30

Event Type

It’s less complicated than it seems. In this session, you will build your first data contract. We will first set the decorum:

  • What is a data contract?
  • What’s its purpose?
  • Why it simplifies data engineers’ lives?

Then, we will jump into the hands-on part, using some (as of now, experimental) open-source tools to generate a skeleton of a data contract, and we will add information to it.

Join us for this fun and fast-paced session, filled with extremely relevant information, whether you are using IBM products or not.
