My Google BigQuery Udemy class

Published 3 years, 5 months ago 5 min read bigquery gcp udemy class googlecloud

Trying to take an advantage of sitting at home during covid-19 time, I created this Google BigQuery class that will be helpful for beginners starting with GCP and BigQuery. I put 5 years of my knowledge into 3 hours of video content where I try to explain the whole concept.

You can find it on Udemy.com under this link: Google BigQuery Udemy class.

Content of the class

During the 3 hours of video, I take it through these topics:

  • Understand the concept of BigQuery and how does it stand next to other databases such as MySQL or Postgress
  • Import your data to BigQuery and Cloud storage, create your table, export data
  • SQL basics – SELECT, WHERE, ORDER BY, LIKE, JOIN, Date and String functions
  • SQL aggregation functions - SUM, AVG, COUNT, HAVING and GROUP BY
  • BigQuery ML to create your own machine learning model easily with SQL, make a time series prediction
  • Visualise your data in Google Data Studio and make your own dashboard
  • Advanced BigQuery concepts – Partitioning tables, Clustering and Nested Fields
  • Window analytical functions - SUM() OVER (PARTITION BY...)

I have always wanted to try making a video lesson as I also bought several of them on Udemy at the beginning of my carrier. In Proficio, company I work for, I've made a several workshops for new people joining the team and was always thinking – what about making a video of it and put it online?

Here we go. The production quality is not as great as it could be but as a first try not too bad after all. By the time I'm writing this post, after 2 weeks since the course was released on Udemy, already 20 people have bought the course which is above my expectations.

I'm already thinking about making other video class that would be more production-wise sophisticated but it takes a lot of time an effort. Let's see :)
