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.

Good intro to Big Query, would have loved to see an example case study on a capstone project

The default version of the "six"package, in the installation scripts, is not compatible with "apache_beam". I had to modify the installation scripts to run the Python labs with the version 1.10.0 of package "six".

Great videos, but all the Python codelabs don't work, there is some error regarding metadata occurring when trying to execute python files in Cloud Shell.

Good course, although it would be great to have more materials on Apache Beam programming model and Dataflow pipelines monitoring.

Good overview, but very Java-centric in the later parts; whilst I could follow the intuition, for anyone who isn't familiar with Java's syntax it's easy to become quite lost.

The course was informational and interesting to follow! I would like to see the videos polished so that they were a little smoother in presenting information and remove slow/erroneous sections.

Video needs a bit more editing, there restarts or calendar popping up etc.

Good Intro to google's big query and dataflow.

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

The labs were much easier to do in the previous two courses.

Bigquery has been great, but difficult to understand how to use Dataflow.

Dataflows could need a separate course, but splitting totally between python and java. Not easy the merge.

Good Material but the environment and examples are a little buggy in the labs.

Good Overview

concept of cloud function (lambda function in aws), should have be covered a bit more details.

Also some more examples in terms of scaling the application should have been covered other wise its a Five star.

This course gave good examples of how to tie together several cloud services to produce a real time data pipeline.

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.
