A Data Pipeline is a Materialized View

I just published a post called A Data Pipeline is a Materialized View. In it, I describe a very general way of thinking about data pipelines.

Towards the end of the post, I specifically call out dbt as an example of a modern tool that fits this model of data pipelines as materialized views.

I wonder what dbt contributors or users think about the post. Do you agree with how I’ve presented dbt? Does it mesh with your mental model of what it means to build a data pipeline?
