The Data Warrior

Changing the world, one data model at a time. How can I help you?

Snowflake Resources

In my now five plus years at Snowflake, I have had the privilege and opportunity to help produce lots of ebooks, blogs, videos, and podcasts. Here is the list with links to all of them for easy reference. Some are a few years old, and may provide a more historical view of the product, but all contain information that is very valid today as you look at build on The Data Cloud.

Enjoy!
