Description

An Introduction to Google Cloud Platform for Data Engineers

Welcome to An Introduction to Google Cloud Platform for Data Engineers. This is the first course in a series of courses designed to help you attain the coveted Google Certified Data Engineer.

At this juncture the Google Certified Data Engineer is the only real world certification for data and machine learning engineers.   

The Harvard Review dubbed the data scientist the sexiest job of the 21st century.  It might be the greatest job in the world if you have a dedicated team of data engineers at your beckon call otherwise you’re first week of work is going to be a tough one.   

Most applied machine learning is supervised.  That simply means you use a data set to build your machine learning or deep learning models with.   

In the real world data is messy, complicated and very difficult to work with. Another real world issues is working with data at scale. Very few companies have the compute or storage resources to work with large data sets. That's where the Google Cloud Platform comes in. The tools they've built for the cloud are the tools they are using internally. 

This is the first course in a series of course dedicated to learning the Google Cloud Platform and attaining the Google Certified Data Engineer.   

This course will lay the foundation for what you’ll need in order to become a data engineer and pass the exam. In the course we will cover all the basics of the platform and be prepared to move into the more advanced data engineering specific courses.
