The 10 Essential Rules of Dimensional Modeling

This article is really old (2009!), but I'm including it as a shout out to an awesome conversation that happened over in dbt's Slack. A dozen-ish people weighed in on their data modeling practices, whether they strictly adhered to Kimball (most people) or think that Kimball contains useful concepts but needs an update (me). 

If you do any work in a data warehouse, you need to at the very least be familiar with Kimball dimensional modeling concepts, and if you're interested in talking with other people obsessed with this stuff, join us in Slack channel #modeling :)
