Using Dagster's software-defined assets and BigQuery I/O manager, you can easily interact with BigQuery tables alongside other Dagster assets.
Managing your BigQuery tables with Dagster enables you to:
- Use Python to analyze your data stored in BigQuery without writing custom SQL queries to fetch the data
- Visualize the data dependencies between tables
- Selectively update the contents of your tables
- Integrate your BigQuery tables with other tools in your data stack
In this tutorial, you'll learn how to store and load Dagster's software-defined asset in BigQuery. Click here to get started.
By the end of the tutorial, you will have a connection to your BigQuery instance and a handful of assets that create tables in BigQuery or read existing tables from BigQuery.
