Google BigQuery Training​ Course Overview

BigQuery is Google’s fully managed, petabyte-scale, low-cost analytics data warehouse. It is an enterprise data warehouse that solves storing and querying massive datasets problem by enabling super-fast SQL queries using the processing power of Google’s Infrastructure. Delegates can access BigQuery by using command-line, by using Classic web UI or GCP console, or by making calls to the BigQuery REST API using a variety of client libraries such as Java, .NET, or Python.

This course teaches delegates about running and managing jobs, working with datasets, table schema, partitioned tables, clustered tables, and views. Delegates will acquire knowledge of how to add, view, update, filter, and delete labels in BigQuery resources. This course describes how to load data into BigQuery and querying BigQuery data. Delegates will learn how to query externally partitioned data, federated queries with cloud SQL data, query cloud big table data, cloud storage, and Google drive data. In addition, delegates will also gain an understanding of controlling BigQuery costs, securing BigQuery resources, monitoring, logging and BigQuery API.
