May 11th, 2022 – Introduction to Snowflake Cloud as presented by Sushree Mishra

Welcome to the May 11th 2022 online meeting!  Covid restrictions are lifting and a return to in-person meetings may take shape in the coming months.  Until then, we all continue to operate monthly online meetings through the PNW collaborative facilitated by the Oregon Data Community.  A number of NW local data user groups are working together to help shoulder the load over covid,  hosting regular online monthly meetings for all members.  The collaborative will always have the regular OR Data Community “evening” meeting date/time on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 4 PM PST, and if possible a second meeting on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 12 PM PST!

We are now using Teams!  The meeting link will either be revealed via meetup when you RSVP, or be published closer to the meeting date.

 

In order to encourage questions during the presentation, please use chat which will be monitored and/or use the raise hands option in Teams.  Please be mindful of the other attendees and mute your mic!

We will be starting at 4:00 PM

Schedule (may be fluid due to discussions and Q/A):
4:00 – 4:15 PM – Announcements and other information
4:15 PM – Presentation

Our wonderful sponsors are providing gifts each month!

Presentation:

Title: Introduction to Snowflake Data Cloud

Abstract: Snowflake delivers the Data Cloud — a global network where thousands of organizations mobilize data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. Inside the Data Cloud, organizations unite their siloed data, easily discover and securely share governed data, and execute diverse analytic workloads. Snowflake’s platform is the engine that powers the workloads, creating a solution for data warehousing, data lakes, data engineering, data science, data application development, and data sharing.

We will go over Snowflake’s Architecture at first and then dive into various key features that make it the complete data cloud. We will also talk about where these features fit in the day-to-day analytics world. We will talk about the workloads that Snowflake supports. We will end with the QnA session.
