Who is it for?

Essentials training is the recommended starting point for beginners but it’s also a great choice for self-taught users to make sure they have a complete understanding of all key principles and features, especially when working in a team.

What you’ll learn

You’ll be able to effectively develop basic data transformations in CloverDX, covering typical data manipulation scenarios. While the time allotted to this course allows us to only cover the core components, you’ll be well equipped to be productive in your team, explore further on your own or take our more advanced courses.

  • You’ll understand key concepts and terminology to know your way around the platform and to effectively work with your colleagues.
  • You’ll be able to build and deploy to production a typical data transformation job with non-trivial data manipulation tasks such as reformatting data structures, aggregation, sorting, etc.
  • You’ll understand how to combine visual design and coding for greater flexibility (we’ll cover the basics of CTL, the CloverDX Transformation Language).
  • You’ll learn the basics of workflow orchestration to automate more complex jobs on the Server.

How it works

  • This is a self-paced course without a trainer
  • Recommended duration is one week with an expected workload of 60-90 minutes a day
