Getting started with Airflow, the de facto standard for data orchestration with over 12M downloads per month, has never been easier. With a combination of new Airflow features, open source community projects, and Astro products, you can create complex data pipelines that leverage Airflow’s best-in-class orchestration while writing less code and without extensive Airflow knowledge.

In this workshop, we’ll take you from running Airflow locally, to writing your first DAG, to implementing ELT use cases with simple and complex datasets. In just a couple of hours, you’ll learn:

  • How to run Airflow locally using the open source Astro CLI for easy local development.
  • How to express complex, dynamic use cases in your DAGs.
  • How to write an ELT DAG that implements SQL and Python functions with no boilerplate code using the Astro Python SDK, a new open source SDK designed for rapid development of ETL/ELT workflows.
  • How Astronomer is making DAG writing easier, including the Astro Cloud IDE, a notebook-inspired way to write data pipelines.
