Introducing Haystack

Ever wondered what Project Haystack is all about? Well, now it's really easy to find out!

Introducing Haystack is the first training module from our in-depth Haystack Essentials eLearning course.

We have released this independently as a FREE taster course so you can explore the purpose and benefits of using Project Haystack for semantic data models.

Once you know WHY you should use Project Haystack - we teach you HOW with the full version - Haystack Essentials.

Haystack Essentials

Even if you're familiar with tagging, this official eLearning course teaches you everything you (didn't even know you) didn't know about!

Work through fully guided exercises to understand the capabilities of adding extra dimensions of flow and movement to your data models - purely through inherited tags.
