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.

Course could have been better if the labs contain some challenges regarding the dataflow pipeline. For instance, it must have contained some tasks where user have to write the apache beam pipeline.

The labs could be more interactive in terms of checking if students understood the concepts and code included in the procedures, otherwise it was very informative.

A few of the tasks in Qwiklabs were not clear and won't let me finish the task.

Found some strange things on this course:

Task within qwiklabs and some videos weren't being set as completed;

Qwiklabs - Serverless Data Analysis with BigQuery Lab 3 : Advanced SQL Queries is being a nightmare to attain 100%. Every time I go through it, different tasks are marked as completed.

Great course overall, however there were a few too many lab issues that required resets of the environment by stopping and starting them as well as oddities in instructions.

Many course have coding.

Could you please separate in to this is Python , this is Java?

Achei bem complexo para quem não é desenvolvedor.

The assignments on cloud dataflow were not easy to understand. Module on bigQuery was good.

Some of the python labs were not compete.

Started out very solid and then it just fell a bit short on some of the key exercises. Probably should have started with the Data Prep Tool & Templates before heading into Beam pipelines and Side Inputs and those two could have been more detailed. I finished this course in 1.5 days so you had a bit of room to make it more robust with a week being the expectation.

BQ portion, very helpful.

some of the python labs with dataflow would not work - I tried project name- but it kept complaining that it could not be found, even though I copied it from the project name of GCP home. I loved the content and the pace- but without the final 4 labs working I was unable to follow along dynamically, I had to stop the video and review the code by hand to understand.

Found trouble doing for a number of the lab exercises.

Some labs where not working as expected and had to try to debug python code.

No handlers could be found for logger "oauth2client.contrib.multistore_file"/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/apache_beam/coders/ UserWarning: Using fallback coder for typehint: <type 'NoneType'>. warnings.warn('Using fallback coder for typehint: %r.' % typehint)WARNING:root:The DirectPipelineResult is being garbage-collected while the DirectRunner is still running the corresponding pipeline. This may lead to incomplete execution of the pipeline if the main thread exits before pipeline completion. Consider using result.wait_until_finish() to wait for completion of pipeline execution.

After several attempts to fix this, I just skipped the remaining parts and I will look for some tutorials on youtube.

Content is very valuable, but appears rushed in production.

1 min videos should be replaced by 1 single video. It breaks the continuation.

The BigQuery is pretty clear with google explanations. Dataflow section is so confusing I bet it has the most weird lessons until now

Videos need editing and some of the Dataflow labs don't work correctly (error out)

Two of the labs did not work. But still a valuable course.

Labs were not detail enough.

Wish to see more examples of different transforms available in Beam

Good review of Google's offerings. The labs, which are free to anyone, are where you get to apply hands-on but these are not graded. The grading is done solely on a few short quizzes
