Overview Overview

This four-day instructor-led class provides participants a hands-on introduction to designing and building data processing systems on Google Cloud Platform. Through a combination of presentations, demos, and hand-on labs, participants will learn how to design data processing systems, build end-to-end data pipelines, analyze data and carry out machine learning. The course covers structured, unstructured, and streaming data.

This course teaches participants the following skills:

  • Design and build data processing systems on Google Cloud Platform
  • Process batch and streaming data by implementing autoscaling data pipelines on Cloud Dataflow
  • Derive business insights from extremely large datasets using Google BigQuery
  • Train, evaluate and predict using machine learning models using Tensorflow and Cloud ML
  • Leverage unstructured data using Spark and ML APIs on Cloud Dataproc
  • Enable instant insights from streaming data

This class is intended for experienced developers who are responsible for managing big data transformations including:

  • Extracting, Loading, Transforming, cleaning, and validating data
  • Designing pipelines and architectures for data processing
  • Creating and maintaining machine learning and statistical models
  • Querying datasets, visualizing query results and creating reports
