This presentation will be an interactive session covering dimensional modeling as taught by Ralph Kimball. We’ll talk about what makes up a dimensional data warehouse, including fact tables and dimensions. We’ll compare a star schemas with a snowflake schema, and talk about what makes a conformed dimension. This will be mainly a whiteboard talk with few if any PowerPoint slides. I’ll expect lots of discussion and interaction with the attendees. Towards the end, we’ll break up into small groups for a hands-on exercise in dimensional modeling.
