About this event

The user group is a community of customers and users of Snowflake, who come together to network, share knowledge and exchange best practices.

This provides you with an opportunity to meet our customers, hear about new products and features and to provide your valued feedback and insights to help improve our products.

Get community updates from your local Snowflake team, expand your professional network, share anecdotes from other users and the highlights from SKO and Data for Breakfast. This will be a fantastic opportunity for your voice to be heard on product aspirations and the road to the Data Cloud Summit in San Francisco.
