hey! i notice that in the tutorial for materialization, files are just saved to the current working directory which is
if you also follow the docker tutorial. i also noticed that in an older version of one of the tutorials if i'm not mistaken, the example was to create an
directory. what is the best practice for storing data / intermediate files on the filesystem? assuming s3 or something like that is the best practice, but if i have to use a local dir


03/26/2020, 8:36 PM shows where we put things on the local system like intermediates if you are doing materializations its up to you where to write it since that is not dagster-managed
does that make sense?
