My courses and book recommendations list....

Courses / Certifications:

Azure Fundementals, AZ-900 - (Adam is very good at explaining terminology about Azure. I have watched almost all of his videos).

Devops, AZ-400 (Very good course about git, Azure devops and other things).

Datavault, (the training institute for data vault modeling).

Snowpro, (not directly a course or a book, but with the study guide in hand you can get to know Snowflake and get a certificate).

Books :


Daan van Beek, The intelligent data-driven organization. (must read book, for anyone dealing with data in organizations, is in dutch).

DAMA-DMBOK, Data management Body of knowledge (tough and difficult to read, but it shows the entire data field, only if you are really interested in reading heavy stuff).


Steve Hoberman, Data Modeling Made Simple: A Practical Guide for Business and IT Professionals


Daniel Linstedt & Michael Olschimke, Building a Scalable Data Warehouse with Data Vault 2.0 (Best book so far, but a bit too extensive).

John Giles, The Elephant in the Fridge: Guided Steps to Data Vault Success through Building Business-Centered Models (on advice, seems to be a good read).

Hans Hultgren, Modeling the Agile Data Warehouse with Data Vault (contains relevant matters).


Christopher Adamson, Star Schema: The Complete Reference (A lot of information about starmodelling, good read).

Ralph Kimball & Margy Ross, The Data Warehouse Toolkit: The Definitive Guide to Dimensional Modeling (classic).

Ralph Kimball et al., The Kimball Group Reader (everything Kimball has written in blogs).

Lawrence Corr & Jim Stagnito, Agile data warehouse design (dimensional design).


Jan Pieter Zwart, Marco Engelbart & Stijn Hoppenbrouwers, Fact Oriented Modeling with FCO-IM. (This is the old NIAM method, in a new guise, insightful).


Gene Kim, the Unicorn project (Sequel to the Phoenix book, nice, but Phoenix book was more of an eye opener).

Gene Kim, The Phoenix project (must read book, easy to read and explains the DevOps principles in a fun way).

Gene Kim, Jez Humble, Patrick Debois & John Willis, DevOps Handbook (actually a must read book, goes into the depth of DevOps).

Matthew Skelton & Manuel Pais, Team Toplogies (interesting book about team organization).

Mirco Hering, DevOps for the modern Enterprise.


Dmitry Anoshin, Dmitry Shirokov, Donna Strok, Jumpstart Snowflake (good book about Snowflake, is introductionary, all common features of Snowflake explained).
