About the Course

This 1-week, accelerated course builds upon previous courses in the Data Engineering on Google Cloud Platform specialization. Through a combination of video lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, you'll learn how to create and manage computing clusters to run Hadoop, Spark, Pig and/or Hive jobs on Google Cloud Platform. You will also learn how to access various cloud storage options from their compute clusters and integrate Google’s machine learning capabilities into their analytics programs. In the hands-on labs, you will create and manage Dataproc Clusters using the Web Console and the CLI, and use cluster to run Spark and Pig jobs. You will then create iPython notebooks that integrate with BigQuery and storage and utilize Spark. Finally, you integrate the machine learning APIs into your data analysis. Pre-requisites • Google Cloud Platform Big Data & Machine Learning Fundamentals (or equivalent experience) • Some knowledge of Python...

The course has introduced me to hadoop tools. I have learned how easy it is to setup a hadoop cluster using Dataproc. Will sure look for cases that have implemented hadoop and replicate on GCP.

This is very handy course compared with other cloud platform where a customized environment was provided without concerning setup it on my own. This is very thoughtful and I'm very appreciated.

I think the quizzes should have had more questions, there were many more cool things you could have asked.

This course is far longer than any of the other courses in the Data Engineering specialisation. I felt that it rehashed a lot of the first course as well.

Wish it went in more depth about RDD transformation, which was a little bit confusing... A lab about how DataProc can be used as an extention of BigQuery that does not overlap functionality would be nice. How to covert RDDs to Pandas DF, and vice versa.

Materials and instructors were great and to the point. Labs sometimes don't update the scores.

Course could be improved by allowing user to involve more in the assignment. In other words, assignment should be more on the user side

Good intro to google cloud data proc. The labs helps getting a taste for what it's like using the platform. There's not much practice though; the course is only meant for getting your feet wet.

I wish more of the videos had technical details rather than being a broad overview. I think I learned more from the reading documents than many of the videos.

I enjoyed every bit of learning in this course. I am getting better at understanding Big Data processing using sophisticated and state of the art GCP services. Warming up for Google cloud Data Engineer Certification. Your content is irresistible!
