Snowflake in 20 Minutes

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

  • Creating required objects in Snowflake for storing and querying data, such as databases and tables.
  • 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 will be minimal because the entire tutorial can be completed in under 30 minutes. In addition, your account will be billed for the small amount of on-disk storage utilized for the sample data, unless you choose to drop the table at the end of the tutorial.
