Snowflake SQL for SQL Server Users – SQL Language Differences

I posted last time that I'd completed my Part 1 eBook on Core Concepts. The Part 2 eBook is on the differences in the SQL language between Snowflake and SQL Server.

This next series of blog posts will focus on the query language, particularly on DML (data manipulation language). DDL (data definition language i.e. CREATE, ALTER, DROP) differences will be covered in the Part 3 series on administration.

Snowflake has quite a rich SQL language but it's quite different to the T-SQL offered by SQL Server in many ways.  I'm planning to work right through the Snowflake SQL language documentation and try everything in it, so you don't have to.

In this series of posts though, I'll look primarily at what's different, not on what's the same. (Detailed coverage of the language itself will be in our upcoming online course on Snowflake SQL. It's being built now).

This post will serve as an index to the other posts in this series.

You'll find the other posts in the list below:
