Using Airflow as a Data Analyst

Airflow is sometimes thought of as primarily a data engineering tool, but its use cases are really much broader. A data analyst’s workflow typically involves ingesting and transforming data to extract insights, then presenting the insights in a manner that allows business stakeholders to easily interpret trends and take appropriate action. Airflow’s ease of use and extensive provider ecosystem make it an ideal tool for orchestrating such analytics workflows.

OpenLineage and Airflow: A Deeper Dive

Data lineage is the complex set of relationships between your jobs and datasets. Using OpenLineage with Apache Airflow, you can observe and analyze these relationships, allowing you to find and fix issues more quickly. This webinar will provide a deeper dive on OpenLineage, extending beyond the basics into key implementation details and best practices.

Improve Your DAGs with Hidden Airflow Features

Apache Airflow is flexible and powerful. It has a rich ecosystem and an incredibly active community. But are you sure you haven’t missed anything? A new feature or concept that could put your DAGs at another level? It can be challenging to keep up with the latest Airflow features, and sometimes we miss the most useful ones. For this webinar, I'd like to introduce you to a couple of lesser-known features of Apache Airflow that can dramatically improve your data pipelines.

Scaling Out Airflow

Airflow is purpose-built for high-scale workloads and high availability on a distributed platform. Since the advent of Airflow 2.0, there are even more tools and features to ensure that Airflow can be scaled to accommodate high-throughput, data-intensive workloads. In this webinar, Alex Kennedy will discuss the process of scaling out Airflow utilizing the Celery and Kubernetes Executor, including the parameters that need to be tuned when adding nodes to Airflow and the thought process behind deciding when it’s a good idea to scale Airflow, horizontally and vertically. Consistent and aggregated logging is key when scaling Airflow, and we will also briefly discuss best practices for logging on a distributed Airflow platform, as well as the pitfalls that many Airflow users experience when designing and building their distributed Airflow platform.

Advanced Data Quality Use Cases with Airflow and Great Expectations

At this webinar, Benji Lampel (Enterprise Platform Architect @ Astronomer) and Tal Gluck (Software Engineer @ Superconductive) will present several Airflow DAGs using Great Expectations that cover more advanced DAG patterns and data quality checking cases.

The Airflow API

Introducing Astro: Data Centric DAG Authoring

With Airflow 2.0, we introduced the concept of providers. We’re taking that to the next level with Astro, a new DAG writing experience, brought to you by Astronomer.

Data Lineage with OpenLineage and Airflow

If one out of your hundreds of DAGs fails, how do you know which downstream datasets have become out-of-date? The answer is data lineage. Data lineage is the complex set of relationships between your jobs and datasets. In this webinar, you'll learn how to use OpenLineage to collect lineage metadata from Airflow and assemble a lineage graph - a picture of your pipeline worth way more than a thousand words.

Best Practices for Writing DAGs in Airflow 2

Because Airflow is 100% code, knowing the basics of Python is all it takes to get started writing DAGs. However, writing DAGs that are efficient, secure, and scalable requires some Airflow-specific finesse. In this webinar, you’ll learn the best practices for writing DAGs that will ensure you get the most out of Airflow. We’ll include a reference repo with DAGs you can run yourself with the Astro CLI.

Iterative Data Quality in Airflow DAGs

Data quality is an often overlooked component of data pipelines. Learn why it is a valuable part of data systems and how to get started integrating data quality checks into existing pipelines with a variety of tools.

Intro To Data Orchestration With Airflow

What is Airflow? Definition: Apache Airflow is a way to programmatically author, schedule and monitor data pipelines.

Scheduling In Airflow

The flexibility and freedom that Airflow offers you is incredible, but to really take advantage of it you need to master some concepts first, one of which has just been released in Airflow 2.2 By the end of the webinar, you will be able to define schedule intervals that you thought were impossible before.

Everything you Need to Know About Airflow 2.2

Testing Airflow to Bullet Proof Your Code | Astronomer's Webinar

Airflow, by nature, is an orchestration framework, not a data processing framework. At first sight it can be unclear how to test Airflow code. Are you triggering DAGs in the UI to validate your Airflow code? In this webinar we'll demonstrate various examples how to test Airflow code and integrate tests in a CI/CD pipeline, so that you're certain your code works before deploying to production.

Manage Dependencies Between Airflow Deployments, DAGs, and Tasks

More often that not, your Airflow components will have a desired order of execution particularly if you are performing a traditional ETL process—for example, before the Transform step in ETL, Extraction had to have happened in an upstream pipeline. In this webinar we will discuss how to properly setup dependencies and define an order of execution or operation for your pipelines using dependencies.

Create Powerful Data Pipelines by Mastering Sensors

Do you use Sensors in your data pipelines? Do you need to wait for a file before executing the next step? Are you looking to execute your task after a task completes in another DAG? Would you like to wait for an import in your SQL table before executing the next task? The answer...

While Airflow and ADF (Azure Data Factory) have pros and cons, they can be used in tandem for data pipelines across your organization. In this webinar, we’ll cover how using the two together can really get you the best of both worlds!

Monitor Your DAGs with Airflow Notifications

Anytime you’re running business critical pipelines, you need to know when something goes wrong. Airflow has a built in notification system that can be used to throw alerts when your DAGs fail, succeed, or anything in between. In this webinar, we’ll do a deep dive into how you can customize your notifications in Airflow to meet your needs.
