Google Cloud Professional Data Engineer Course [2019 Update]
The core components of GCP are required to pass the Data Engineers Exam using a real-world applications approach. All of the labs in this course show you the techniques used by big data engineers on the GCP. The course is simplified to allow you to pass the GCP Data Engineers certification. Therefore, this is the most effective course to learn more about GCP if you want to fully understand GCP products and intend to become a Certified Data Engineer in the future. The course is simplified to less than 5 hours! Learn all about GCP in a weekend or in a day!
You will learn:
Understand the main components of GCP, why and when to use its products
Connect to GCP VMs using SSH
Create a dataset using BigQuery
Repeat the BigQuery command in Datalab and draw a graph
Dashboard in Datastudio
Machine learning and AI fundamentals
Applying GCP Products in Real World Applications
Infrastructure solutions will be presented for various use cases as you learn the most while solving real world problems! Theory and practice will be placed to aim to pass the Data Engineers Exam in the shortest possible time. During the exam, most questions will be about the why and not the how. For example, you will be hard pressed to find a question that asks you to choose the right snippet from the 3 snippets.
The course is divided into sections as below:
Introduction – Explore the questions, Why Cloud, Why GCP, GCP’s main differentiators / main selling points, set up your free GCP account
