Snowflake in 20 Minutes

This tutorial uses the Snowflake command line client, SnowSQL, to introduce key concepts and tasks, including:

  • Creating required Snowflake objects (databases, tables, etc.) for storing and querying data.

  • Loading a small amount of sample data from CSV files into a table.

  • Querying the table.


This tutorial requires a virtual warehouse to load the sample data and execute queries. A running virtual warehouse consumes Snowflake credits; however, the number of credits consumed in this tutorial will be minimal because the entire tutorial can be completed in under 30 minutes.

In addition, your account will be billed a minimal amount for the on-disk storage required for the sample data in this tutorial, unless you choose to drop the table at the end of the tutorial.
