GX Cloud

The biggest GX Cloud update: it’s now in public preview! Public preview means anyone can sign up for GX Cloud and start using it to validate their Snowflake or Postgres data sources.

We held our kickoff event on Wednesday, February 21, and we’re thrilled that so many of you came out to join us. If you weren’t able to make it, we’ve embedded a recording at the end of this post.

Some recent GX Cloud release notes of particular interest include:

  • New metrics for timestamp columns are now available (#9207)

  • Work on the expect_column_values_to_be_present_in_another_table Expectation continues (#9224 and others)

  • A bug that sometimes caused Validation Results to show duplicate Expectations has been fixed (#9533)

GX workshops

This month, we held our first-ever workshops for GX Cloud!

Our workshops give you hands-on experience with GX Cloud, guided by our developer advocates. By the end, you have all the skills you need to connect to and start testing your own Snowflake or Postgres data source.

The vast majority of our effort on GX OSS is going into GX 1.0, and that work continues apace. We’re looking forward to getting it into your hands! Of note recently:

  • A bug that manifested as Hex notebook users being asked to reinstall GX has been fixed (#9428)
