Getting started with the metric layer for Lightdash with dbt
The metrics layer can be the missing piece between your transformed models and BI tools to give you speed and guardrails. And in Lightdash itself it quickly gives you just the charts you need to start your analysis.

About this course
Ah, the metrics layer!
There were and are plenty of talks about them. And yes, there are still people around who are unsure if the concept makes sense.
At least for Oliver and myself, it makes 100% sense.
And we explain in this course what kinds of things the metrics layer can solve for you and where you can get speed and guardrails. And we demo how to define metrics and dimensions in dbt and, based on that, create a new Lightdash project and have a time to an insight of ~20m.
Not bad at all.
