In this advanced-level quest, you will learn the ins and outs of developing GCP applications in Java. The first labs will walk you through the basics of environment setup and application data storage with Cloud Datastore. Once you have a handle on the fundamentals, you will get hands-on practice deploying Java applications on Kubernetes and App Engine (the latter is the same framework that powers Snapchat!) With specialized bonus labs that teach user authentication and backend service development, this quest will give you practical experience so you can start developing robust Java applications straight away.
It's no secret that machine learning is one of the fastest growing fields in tech, and Google Cloud has been instrumental in furthering its development. With a host of APIs, Google Cloud has a tool for just about any machine learning job. In this advanced-level quest, you will get hands-on practice with machine learning APIs by taking labs like Detect Labels, Faces, and Landmarks in Images with the Cloud Vision API. Looking for a hands-on challenge lab to demonstrate your skills and validate your knowledge? On completing this quest, enroll in and finish the additional challenge lab at the end of this quest to receive an exclusive Google Cloud digital badge.
In this advanced-level quest, you will learn how to harness serious Google Cloud 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 Google Cloud is the go-to platform for running big data and machine learning jobs.
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.
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 tools and services.
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 Dataprep, to Cloud Composer, this quest is composed of specific labs that will put your Google Cloud 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. Looking for a hands on challenge lab to demonstrate your skills and validate your knowledge? On completing this quest, enroll in and finish the additional challenge lab at the end of the Engineer Data in the Google Cloud to receive an exclusive Google Cloud digital badge.
Want to learn the core SQL and visualization skills of a Data Analyst? Interested in how to write queries that scale to petabyte-size datasets? Take the BigQuery for Analyst Quest and learn how to query, ingest, optimize, visualize, and even build machine learning models in SQL inside of BigQuery.
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 tools and services.
In this series of labs you will learn how to use BigQuery to analyze NCAA basketball data with SQL. Build a Machine Learning Model to predict the outcomes of NCAA March Madness basketball tournament games.
In this introductory-level Quest, you will get hands-on practice with the Google Cloud’s fundamental tools and services. Google Cloud Essentials is the recommended first Quest for the Google Cloud learner - you will come in with little or no prior cloud knowledge, and come out with practical experience that you can apply to your first Google Cloud project. From writing Cloud Shell commands and deploying your first virtual machine, to running applications on Kubernetes Engine or with load balancing, Google Cloud Essentials is a prime introduction to the platform’s basic features. 1-minute videos walk you through key concepts for each lab.
In this introductory-level quest, you will learn the fundamentals of developing and deploying applications on the Google Cloud Platform. You will get hands-on experience with the Google App Engine framework by launching applications written in languages like Python, Ruby, and Java (just to name a few). You will see first-hand how straightforward and powerful GCP application frameworks are, and how easily they integrate with GCP database, data-loss prevention, and security services.
If you are a novice cloud developer looking for hands-on practice beyond Google Cloud Essentials, this quest is for you. You will get practical experience through labs that dive into Cloud Storage and other key application services like Stackdriver and Cloud Functions. By taking this quest, you will develop valuable skills that are applicable to any Google Cloud initiative. 1-minute videos walk you through key concepts for these labs.
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, Google Cloud 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 AI Platform. Want extra help? 1-minute videos walk you through key concepts for each lab.
