About this event

Sometimes you need to store a lot in a database quickly.  Like the kinds of large scale storage that Google would need.  BigQuery is an amazingly scalable and cost-efficient database from Google Cloud and was developed based on years of experience with large databases.  Also this week we'll use Data Studio for an interesting double topic night.

This week's hands-on labs:

Exploring Your Ecommerce Dataset with SQL in Google BigQuery

In this lab, you learn to use BigQuery to find data, query the data-to-insights public dataset, and write and execute queries.

Explore and Create Reports with Data Studio

In this lab, you learn how to connect Google Data Studio to Google BigQuery data tables, create charts, and explore the relationships between dimensions and measures.

You'll work through Google Cloud labs to get hands-on experience and when you complete each whole quest, you earn a badge for your LinkedIn!

We're learning and sharing Google Cloud skills weekly hands-on events using Qwiklabs to help you learn more about Cloud Computing and running your projects on Google servers in the cloud.

Invite a friend who could benefit, and we'll be happy to help them also get access to and to help them get started

Don't miss out on the fun on Wednesdays as we learn cloud computing skills, one week at a time, with a goal of helping you level up!
