Snowflake Workshop

Workshop | Day 1 | 8:30 am | 240 Minute Duration | Grand Gallery A

For those new to Snowflake, this workshop will give you the foundation you need to get started with this groundbreaking technology – the Instantly Elastic Data Warehouse Built for the Cloud.

Our journey will take us along the paths of:

  • What is snowflake?
  • What makes snowflake special?
  • Is it secure?
  • Why do I care about snowflake?
  • How do I get my data into snowflake?
  • What tools are out there for snowflake?
  • Where can I go to learn more?

We’ll discover many of the powerful innovations the Snowflake team has been hard-at-work building into this cloud service that takes us beyond the capabilities found in other data warehouse analytics platforms – and we’ll do this with hands-on experiences!

We’ll answer questions like “How do I get Databricks connected to Snowflake?” and “Can I really load and query JSON data without a lot of fuss-and-muss with SQL?”

This workshop is the not to be missed opportunity for architects, ETL/ELT developers, data scientists and those that want to power-up their analytics environment to solve real problems without the wait!

What you’ll need to bring:

  1. Your laptop ready to connect to a cloud delivered service
