Thanks for contributing!
Isaac Asimov (1920-1992) was a prolific writer of science fiction. He is best known for his "Foundation" series, although he is credited with writing and editing thousands of works of both fiction and nonfiction. Though he was born in New York, he lived in West Philadelphia from 1942 to 1949 with his wife, Gertrude. During this time he wrote a handful of short stories which would later become "Foundation," the first novel in the famous series.
In "Foundation," the mathematician Hari Seldon uses the advanced science of psychohistory to predict the future of human civilization. Concerned by what he foresees, Seldon is allowed to gather the most gifted scientific minds in the galaxy onto a remote planet to create the Encyclopedia Galactica, a compendium of all human knowledge, in the hopes that this knowledge will be preserved for tens of thousands of years and prevent the future downfall of human civilization. The Encyclopedists spend hundreds of years compiling the Encyclopedia, and in the process, they create a rich, new civilization with scientific prowess at the forefront.
Inspired by Hari Seldon's effort, we hope that dbt 0.11 helps you capture and share the important knowledge in your data warehouse.
