This advanced-level quest is unique amongst the other Qwiklabs offerings. The labs have been curated to give IT professionals hands-on practice with topics and services that appear in the Google Cloud Certified Professional Data Engineer Certification. From Big Query, to Dataproc, to Tensorflow, this quest is composed of specific labs that will put your GCP data engineering knowledge to the test. Be aware that while practice with these labs will increase your skills and abilities, you will need other preparation too. The exam is quite challenging and external studying, experience, and/or background in cloud data engineering is recommended.
Big data, machine learning, and scientific data? It sounds like the perfect match. In this advanced-level quest, you will get hands-on practice with GCP services like Big Query, Dataproc, and Tensorflow by applying them to use cases that employ real-life, scientific data sets. By getting experience with tasks like earthquake data analysis and satellite image aggregation, Scientific Data Processing will expand your skill set in big data and machine learning so you can start tackling your own problems across a spectrum of scientific disciplines.
Big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are today’s hot computing topics, but these fields are quite specialized and introductory material is hard to come by. Fortunately, GCP provides user-friendly services in these areas and Qwiklabs has you covered with this introductory-level quest, so you can take your first steps with tools like Big Query, Cloud Speech API, and Cloud ML Engine. Want extra help? 1-minute videos walk you through key concepts for each lab.
This is the second of two Quests of hands-on labs derived from the exercises from the book Data Science on Google Cloud Platform by Valliappa Lakshmanan, published by O'Reilly Media, Inc. In this second Quest, covering chapter 9 through the end of the book, you extend the skills practiced in the first Quest, and run full-fledged machine learning jobs with state-of-the-art tools and real-world data sets, all using Google Cloud Platform tools and services.
This is the first of two Quests of hands-on labs is derived from the exercises from the book Data Science on Google Cloud Platform by Valliappa Lakshmanan, published by O'Reilly Media, Inc. In this first Quest, covering up through chapter 8, you are given the opportunity to practice all aspects of ingestion, preparation, processing, querying, exploring and visualizing data sets using Google Cloud Platform tools and services.
C# has powered Windows .NET application development for nearly two decades and Google Cloud is committed to supporting developers getting their .NET workloads up and running on the GCP platform. In this quest, you will learn how to run C# apps in GCP, and specifically how to take your apps to the next level by interfacing them with the big data and machine learning APIs that are accessible now from C#. By enrolling in Developing Data and Machine Learning Apps with C# you will see firsthand how seamlessly GCP integrates with .NET workloads and what the possibilities are for leveraging big data and ML services in your own C# projects.
In this advanced-level quest, you will learn how to harness serious GCP computing power to run big data and machine learning jobs. The hands-on labs will give you use cases, and you will be tasked with implementing big data and machine learning practices utilized by Google’s very own Solutions Architecture team. From running Big Query analytics on tens of thousands of basketball games, to training TensorFlow image classifiers, you will quickly see why GCP is the go-to platform for running big data and machine learning jobs.
This Quest of hands-on labs demonstrates the power of integrating Google Cloud Platform services and tools with G Suite applications. With integration technologies such as App Script and the Clasp Command Line environment, you will create and publish web apps and add-ons for G Suite products: Sheets, Docs, Forms, and Slides. With App Maker you will build a ready-to-use app that has a Google Cloud SQL Database, Google Maps integration, and a Mobile Responsive Design. Other labs create direct connections to GCP data sources-- using the BigQuery API, Sheets, and Slides to collect, analyze and present data.
Cloud SQL is a fully managed database service that stands out from its peers due to high performance, seamless integration, and impressive scalability. In this fundamental-level quest, you will receive hands-on practice with the basics of Cloud SQL and quickly progress to advanced features, which you will apply to production frameworks and application environments. From creating instances and querying data with SQL, to building Deployment Manager scripts and highly available databases that run on GKE containers, Cloud SQL will give you the knowledge and experience needed so you can start integrating this service right away.
Security is an uncompromising feature of Google Cloud Platform services, and GCP has developed specific tools for ensuring safety and identity across your projects. In this fundamental-level quest, you will get hands-on practice with GCP’s Identity and Access Management (IAM) service, which is the go-to for managing user and virtual machine accounts. You will get experience with network security by provisioning VPCs and VPNs, and learn what tools are available for security threat and data loss protections.
