In this webinar, we offer participants a look under the hood of operators, detailing how they work and the best ways to tailor them to specific use-cases. The main building blocks of Airflow DAGs, operators are templates for carrying out predefined work, either through performing an action or telling another system to perform an action. They are what make tasks run inside your DAGs.

This webinar shows you everything you need to know about using operators in your DAGs, and answers questions like:

  • What is an operator?
  • How do operators work?
  • What are hooks, and how are they used within operators?
  • How do you extend an operator?
  • What are some examples of when you would need to extend or customize an operator?
  • How do you implement custom callbacks?

All of the sample code shown in this webinar can be found in this repo.
