TOP REVIEWS FROM MODERNIZING DATA LAKES AND DATA WAREHOUSES WITH GCP
Good introduction and overview of the field of data engineering, data lakes and modern data warehouses and a hands-on walkthrough of all the technologies related to solving these problems on GCP.
A better understanding of BigQuery starts here. A vital resource for consultants, data analysts, and product managers, and an important reference source for engineers and data scientists.
The course offers a nice description of what modern DWH means, which are the differences between classic DWH and cloud DWH. You have the chance to work with the new cloud concept on GCP.
I really like how the Google courses do not overwhelm the learner with too much information. The information was presented well and the labs were very practical with clear instructions.
