Sponsor Workshops: Salesforce: Developing a DSL in Python: Snowfakery is a DSL for Large Volume Data Synthesis

Presented by:


Whenever one builds a new application, there is a challenge in testing it at scale: where do you get sufficient data to generate a realistic “data shape?”. Snowfakery is a Domain Specific Language that builds on and deeply integrates with Python to excel at this task.

This talk will describe how to build an “interpreter” for a YAML-based language in Python, including how we leverage Python-specific superpowers such as Jinja templating and easy dynamic loading.
