The combination of Java and python is sometimes a bit confusing. Maybe it would be better to split the course in a java and a python version so all the Beam concepts are taught in a single language.

Thanks for designing such a wonderful course outline. I learned valuabe BigQuery and Cloud Dataflow concepts. Best part was to learn how to write data pipelines and execute on cloud using Dataflow.

I wish labs give more instructions and more tasks to the student. Meanwhile, some labs are poor and limited to copy / paste code and press enter, without letting students to think how to resolve a problem by himself.

The mix of Java and Python is a bit weird. There was some repetition in the labs. Otherwise nice resource to learn Apache Beam and BigQuery.

The Labs related to Java are showing as not completed even though I have completed them. Rest all seems to be good enjoyed the learning

The first quiz included a question for the second part, which of course, it was repeated in the second quiz. Some times the quizes fails, but you retake them and then pass using the same answers.

Some videos didn't show the intended slides, that is, it's showing the title and the presenter is referencing content that isn't there. Some times the presenter does "small demos" showing all his crap in his desktop.

Lak (the main instructor) seems knowledgeable in the subject matter, but he needs some training and experience as an instructor. Also, he keeps referencing and bringing up a "third party project" that does some basic analysis, which of course, he himself did. Thus, the shameless self promotion goes from "google only" to "google and this dude"

I feel that the content is old and not updated according to the newer format of the certification requirement.

I would seriously consider to use all the time Lax has during his lab videos. There is far too many periods of silence, which to me is a golden opportunity to explain 1-2 lines of code in more detail. Given that the language and lingo is heavy, it would help if the instructors slowed down, or added a line of explanation.

I prefer some challenges within the labs

Questions are a bit incoherent because the second to last quiz contains questions about subjects discussed in a later stage. Also the java/python doubling creates some confusion at times. It appears you switched to Python as the main language after have Java as a first language for a while, some of the explanations are about java whilst the examples are about python.

The labs were mostly cop/paste. It'll be good to have some actual exercises

Good course along with video and quizes. I didn't have any idea about this and was able to get concept just by attending this course.

So far it is excellent. Although I do have to play all the videos at 2x speed.

nice need more explanation for python code rather than java code. because graded labs are related to python.
