Google Cloud Platform Big Data & Machine Learning

Google Cloud Platform Big Data & Machine Learning

This 8 hour instructor-led class introduces participants to the Big Data & Machine Learning capabilities of Google Cloud Platform. It provides a quick overview of the Google Cloud Platform and a deeper dive of the data processing capabilities.


At the end of this one-day course, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the purpose and value of the key Big Data and Machine Learning products in the Google Cloud Platform
  • Use CloudSQL and Cloud Dataproc to migrate existing MySQL and Hadoop/Pig/Spark/Hive workloads to Google Cloud Platform
  • Employ BigQuery and Cloud Datalab to carry out interactive data analysis
  • Choose between Cloud SQL, BigTable and Datastore
  • Train and use a neural network using TensorFlow
  • Choose between different data processing products on the Google Cloud Platform

Intended Audience

This class is intended for Data analysts, Data scientists and Business analysts. It is also suitable for IT decision makers evaluating Google Cloud Platform for use by data scientists.

This class is for people who do the following with big data:
  • Extracting, Loading, Transforming, cleaning, and validating data for use in analytics
  • Designing pipelines and architectures for data processing
  • Creating and maintaining machine learning and statistical models
  • Querying datasets, visualizing query results and creating reports


Before attending this course, participants should have roughly one (1) year of experience with one or more of the following:
  • A common query language such as SQL
  • Extract, transform, load activities
  • Data modeling
  • Machine learning and/or statistics
