About this event

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.

**Join us on Zoom as Steve Nord leads us in a Quest about BigQuery.**

We will be using the Google Free Resource - QWIK LABS. This is part 1, of a larger Quest about BigQuery. But, let's start with the fundamentals together and see where it takes us. Total time for whole Quest: 15 hours. This study jam: 1 hour and 15 minutes.

More about our Study Jam Leader:
My name is Steve Nord. I majored in Statistics while I was at the University of Akron and I spent the first 6 years of my career in the actuarial field. I now work as a Software Developer for Callibrity and am contracted into a Fortune 500 bank. My career goal is to become an expert in the data science/machine learning realm so I can create technology that supports environmental care and conservation. Outside of work, I enjoy sports, movies, and traveling with my wife. Fun fact: My wife and I quit our jobs and traveled to 15 countries in 6 months.
