Snowflake is a cloud-native, managed data platform for big data storage and processing that does not require any hardware or software installation, maintenance, or upgrades and can be connected to in a variety of ways. In this course, learn how to set up a Snowflake free trial account, log into it, and navigate the classic Snowflake UI. Next, practice creating and monitoring virtual warehouses and executing DDL operations. Finally, discover how to create databases and tables, load data into tables, instantiate file format objects, and query tables. Upon completion, you'll be able to list features and use cases of Snowflake, differentiate Snowflake editions, and utilize virtual warehouses and databases to separate data and compute.
