Snowflake is a modern data cloud solution/ platform that uses an abstraction known as a stage to provide bulk loading of data for analysis, resulting in faster query processing. Begin this course by exploring the internal and external stages in Snowflake. Then, you will load data using Snowflake's classic user interface (UI). Next, examine erroneous data and discover how to query the data and download the results. You will also load data from the stage into an actual table using the SnowSQL command-line interface. Finally, you will create and use table stages, as well as named stages. When you have completed this course, you will be able to differentiate between internal and external stages, list types and features of internal stages, and load data using the classic Snowflake UI.
