About this event

Join us virtually on October 5th at 4pm AEDT for a special Asia Pacific user group meeting as a part of the BUILD.local series. BUILD.local meetings are community-led sessions that cover innovations in the data applications, data science, data engineering, and data sharing space. Register to participate virtually, and get your custom BUILD.local Asia Pacific swag package! This meeting will be streamed to the global audience attending Snowflake BUILD.

When building and testing data apps, it's always handy to have a dataset that resembles the real world. But generating 100 million fake things (names, addresses, etc) and importing them into Snowflake can be time consuming and error-prone. During this session you'll learn all about Flaker, a Snowflake External Functions wrapper for the popular Faker python library, and how it evolved into a native Java UDF.
