Event Details

This course will introduce you to Google Cloud’s big data and machine learning functions. You’ll begin with a quick overview of Google Cloud and then dive deeper into its data processing capabilities.


Roughly one year of experience with one or more of the following: ● A common query language such as SQL. ● Extract, transform, and load activities. ● Data modeling. ● Machine learning and/or statistics. ● Programming in Python.


● Identify the purpose and value of the key Big Data and Machine Learning products in Google Cloud. ● Use Cloud SQL and Dataproc to migrate existing MySQL and Hadoop/Pig/Spark/Hive workloads to Google Cloud. ● Employ BigQuery and Cloud SQL to carry out interactive data analysis. ● Choose between different data processing products in Google Cloud. ● Create ML models with BigQuery ML, ML APIs, and AutoML.


● Data analysts, data scientists, and business analysts who are getting started with Google Cloud. ● Individuals responsible for designing pipelines and architectures for data processing, creating and maintaining machine learning and statistical models, querying datasets, visualizing query results, and creating reports. ● Executives and IT decision makers evaluating Google Cloud for use by data scientists.
