Dimensional modeling in 2018

It is quite common to update your skills in a product, Power BI for example. It is not so common to re-validate concepts or theory very often. For example "Joins are performance heavy", or "Data warehouses need surrogate keys". Usually these things don't change very often. Still it is important to update your view on

In order to speed things up and to remove redundancy, there is no relational data storage even if the data is relational in nature.
