A list of data tools I use regularly, or look forward to testing out
Dear Data-Traveller, please note that this is a LinkedIn-Remix.
I posted this content already on LinkedIn in September 2022, but I want to make sure it doesn’t get lost in the social network abyss.
For your accessibility-experience and also for our own content backup, we repost the original text here.

Every week I discover new data tools. And I am a dangerous person when it comes to new tools. If I could, I would try them all. But I can’t….
So I try to avoid watching other people talking about new data products. But I usually fail because I love to see these.
So I did one myself. Video link in the comments.
In this video, I discuss the tools I am using and put them into four categories: Essentials, Road to Essential, Testing, and Testing Backlog.
Essentials are tools I use regularly. Here is the list of my essential tools:
– Google Tag Manager
– Google Cloud Platform
– dbt Labs
– GitHub Codespaces
– Activity Schema (thanks to Ahmed Elsamadisi)
I explain how I use them, why I have chosen them, and what could challenge their status as essential.
On the road to Essential are these tools:
– Walker.js (thanks to Ayla Prinz & Alexander Kirtzel)
I explain the use cases and what is missing for me to declare them as essential.
On the testing workbench, I have these tools:
– Zing Data
– Elementary Data
I quickly explain what use case I am testing at the moment.
In my backlog for the following tests are these:
– Piwik PRO
– DuckDB Labs
