WHAT IS A DATA SUPERHERO?
Data Superheroes are expert users who go above and beyond in supporting other Snowflake Community members. They regularly educate other users by sharing knowledge, tips, and best practices both online and at live and virtual conferences. Data Superheroes have access to Snowflake product and engineering teams, can receive early invitations to Snowflake events, and are regularly asked to share their Snowflake experiences with other data experts. Get to know some of our top Snowflake Data Superheroes by watching our virtual Snowflake Community event, GROUP BY: Data Heroes, on YouTube!
HOW CAN I BECOME A DATA SUPERHERO?
If you’re a Snowflake Community member hosting user groups, giving talks, writing personal blog posts, recording demos, or answering questions on Stack Overflow, we want to recognize you for your contributions! As you engage and share your expertise, you will be awarded points based on the activity (see table below). The more you engage, the more award points you’ll earn. Once you’ve collected 12,000 points, you will officially be granted Data Superhero status. You can track your contributions and points as you establish your expertise. We hope you’ll consider sharing your experiences with the rest of the Snowflake Community!
