I am happy to announce that The Snowflake Community—a hub for Snowflake users to connect, share, and learn from each other both offline and online—is launching a new program called the Select Star Program.
The Select Star program recognizes and rewards our most engaged community members who go above and beyond to help other users around the globe. The program offers many opportunities, including speaking at meetups or during webinars, publishing technical tutorials and blog posts, answering questions on Stack Overflow, and sharing your own Snowflake story with the community. The more you engage and offer support, the more award points you’ll earn. Once you’ve collected 1,000 points, we’ll officially accept you into the Select Star program.

So for your last technical task of the year, as Heli recommends, go get the latest version of Oracle SQL Dev Data Modeler. Looks like a bunch of important fixes (including some “annoying behavior”).
The Data Warrior
This is a version I have been waiting: so many important bug fixes! I downloaded it immediatelly the evening it was available and finished one of my projects using it.
If you have not downloaded it yet, do it today: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/datamodeler/downloads/index.html
Why did I waited for it? Because of, for instance, these bug fixes:
|27245333 – IMPORT OF DDL AS ORACLE 12CR2 DOESN’T RECOGNIZE DATA TYPES
27182476 – SQL SERVER 2012 DDL GENERATION FAILS WITH CLASS CAST EXCEPTION
26985782 – STANDARD REPORT – COLUMN DATA TYPE IS NOT INCLUDED WHEN COLLECTION
27040952 – DESIGN PROPERTIES DIALOG DOESN’T WORK
26988362 – IMPORTING LEGACY PHYSICAL MODEL RESULTS IN TABLE ITEMS LISTED RED IN HIERARCHY
27041167 – REVERSE CLAUSE FOR INDEX IS NOT PROCESSED DURING IMPORT FROM DATABASE
26918584 – SYNC TO DB CANNOT RECOGNIZE TABLES WHEN PROXY USER IS USED
26919656 – PROBLEMS WHEN EDITING UDP FOR ATTRIBUTES IN ENTITY DIALOG
