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.

Very good course for BigQuery and Dataflow. There are enough material for me to get started with the products. Since Dataflow is a central in data analytics, I wish they cover more topics like advanced data pipelines, more coding examples and how to read metrics in Dataflow pipeline graphs.

Will need to intensely dive into the documentation to understand the gcloud CLI. Wish we could've spent more time on that. The real world examples were very instructive, though.

All lab explanations are for java labs, maybe will be better to add the python lab explanations

Some issues faced during course and that issues eaten up my time. I have raised it to support to take care. But overall it is a good course and enjoyed learning.

Great course with lots of examples via hands-on Labs. Some of the public data sets are no longer available and some of the data pipelines take a quite a while to run so some maintenance of the material is needed.

Falta mas practica porque el tema es extenso y muy interesante para tan poca practica

It is required go deeper in Python and/or Java to understand better the code used in Dataflow

This course provides an overview of BigQuery, DataFlow and DataPrep. It has give me an opportunity to do hands on each topic and learn quickly.

The last lab "Serverless Data Analysis with Dataflow Lab 3 : Side Inputs (Java/Python)" (, student account does not have enough privilege to run query on BigQuery. I got stuck on these queires:

SELECT content FROM [fh-bigquery:github_extracts.contents_java_2016] LIMIT 10

SELECT COUNT(*) FROM [fh-bigquery:github_extracts.contents_java_2016]

Good explanation on and lots of (SQL, Java and Python) code examples for BigQuery and Dataflow. Unfortunately, the course material is not available for download and the labs are too repetitive (setting up the basics every time before you can actually start).

La sección de bigquery muy buena, dataflow no tanto.

The labs with BigQuery are no working with new UI because it doesn't have tables to see. And the Old UI I don't have select rights on any tables. Terrible!!

Some elements did not work correctly. Answers to the questions asked were not provided clearly for the labs

Good to learn and understand

Would have learned more if challenged to correct or add code to labs to make them work. Very useful overview of BQ & DF with good templates in both Java & Python. Recommend you do labs using both as they varied just a bit.

Very nice course. Good to have both Java and Python implementations

It's so hard and Labs were too slow

Dataflow course could be a bit more detailed

Thank you for the course. I wish the last 3 labs about dataflow were using python code and not java. In general all the material about dataflow is the hardest so far in this specialisation. Not easy to grasp for a person with limited coding skills.

Good Intro to google's big query and dataflow.

Assignments were codelabs that can be found in Google's codelabs site
