This 1-week accelerated on-demand course introduces participants to the Big Data and Machine Learning capabilities of Google Cloud Platform (GCP). It provides a quick overview of the Google Cloud Platform and a deeper dive of the data processing capabilities.

At the end of this 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

Before enrolling in 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
• Programming in Python

by Y. Nicodeme partially completed this course, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
This course materials and in particular its organization were very deceptive. Google Cloud platform looks like a great platform, but the tutorials and examples are no different from what you'd fine by opening a free account at Google Cloud platform.

by Steven Black is taking this course right now, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
I Like the instructor and the course is interesting but all the assessments are quiz-based. I would've like to see more creativity in the assessments.
