My overall experience with Snowflake has been a pleasurable one. Though there have been some frustrations at times I have learned and overcome and become a better programmer, and SQL developer for it. I feel like Snowflake is an old friend now.

Pros

The thing that I like most about this software is really if you can think it you can do it with Snowflake. I mean as long as it deals with data. I first started at my company using oracle and I didn't stick with that for long because we adopted snowflake. When we started using snowflake my knowledge of SQL just jumped sky high. Instead of just selecting from tables, I was using cte's and partitions and all of that fun stuff. Snowflake made it super easy to understand and learn. The ability it has to handle the amount of columns that it does is amazing.

Cons

There is a little bit of a learning curve to get the hang of it. But on the surface it is just like any other sql language and you just have to figure out the different quirks that it has. I wish it could give data instantaneously and read my mind on what I want but that is pretty much impossible so I'm going to stick with what I have.

I love Snowflake as they have made data warehousing a very easy activity. Having the ability to use SQL to query huge data sets is revolutionary.

Pros

Big Data with Simple SQL - it is amazing how easy this product is to use but still as the horsepower to process billions of rows of data without a sweat. The separation of storage-compute and cloud provider agnostic environment support is the best.

Cons

Snowflake is expensive if used "incorrectly". Users need to be extremely skilled to be able to reduce cost on the platform and use virtual WHs appropriately.

I really like the fact that i can store my data in snowflake and use that to create visualizations in tableau.

Pros

1 - I like the way it stores the big data.
2 - Convenient to connect with tableau for visualizations.

Cons

1 - Costly if data is too big
2 - You can't own the data, you have to depend on the Data Engineering team.
