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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

Very good, would have given 5 stars, but missed Python demos for the last 2 labs (side-inputs and streaming). Keen to revisit when Python demos are included, as the API for side-inputs is different between Python and Java, pvalue and whatnot...

Couple of labs does not have python code for practice. Very Good Content

In depth look at Cloud Dataflow and how it can handle streaming and batch data. The lab examples require strong understanding of Java and Python is understand the code being executed.

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".

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

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.

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

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.
