In the first post in this series titled Import Series Part 1 - Getting Started with Import Sets , I set up a simple Import Set to Load and Transform Chicago Park District data into Location records. In that post, we glossed over some big topics. In this post, we’re going to address: Just what exactly is happening when you use the “Load Data” module? How do all of these pieces fit together?
This post is the first in a series about Import/Export topics. The goal is to get you up to speed on Import Set concepts and to walk you through the process of setting up an Import Set from scratch. While this initial post is focused on building an import set, we’ll dig into the theory and what happens behind the scenes in future posts. If at any time you get lost on a step, skip ahead and watch the animated GIF summary for that section!
