Leveraging Unstructured Data with Cloud Dataproc on Google Cloud Platform

This course is part of the Google Data Engineer specialisation courses. In this course, you will learn to create and manage computing clusters to run Hadoop, Spark, Pig, and/or Hive jobs on the Google Cloud Platform. Learn how to design data processing systems, build end-to-end data pipelines, analyze data and carry out machine learning.

You will also learn how to access various cloud storage options from their compute clusters and integrate Google's machine learning capabilities into their analytics programs. It is 5 days of jam-packed theory, demos, and practicals that will arm you with all you need to know to master the Big data on Google Cloud Platform
