This year’s Snowpark Day — presented by SnowflakeStreamsetsDataiku, and NTT DATA — was held on April 21, 2022 and it was certainly one for the books!

We played a part in bringing this event to life as David Hrncir, NTT DATA regional technical expert, captured what’s changed with Snowpark and showcased the range of its possibilities.

David broke down parsing and transforming HL7 messages (a healthcare industry-specific, unstructured data format) with Snowpark Python using Snowflake. He also covered Snowpark use cases, advantages and key differences, as well as an overview of understanding the use of HL7 in the healthcare industry. David then brought it all together with a Snowflake Snowpark demo.

What is Snowpark (and Snowpark Day)?

Snowpark Day is all about — you guessed it — Snowpark, which is a developer framework of Snowflake. Snowpark was designed to ease the difficulty that data professionals face when collaborating in a complex data environment.

Snowpark allows data engineers, data scientists and developers to write code in their own language of choice. With the simplicity and power of DataFrames in mind, you can leverage the Snowpark API to write data engineering applications or do exploratory analysis using its intuitive table-like structures with the strong data typing of Scala. 

The sessions at this year’s Snowpark Day featured 10 speakers from Snowflake, Streamsets, Dataiku and NTT DATA. Each of the sessions aims to educate about the newest features of Snowpark and offers the chance to visualize their potential by exploring new use cases.

So why Snowpark (and Snowflake in general)?

The goal of Snowpark is to improve collaboration, and we’re all about building better, together.
