The course will be taught in Java.
The tutorials’s objectives include:
- Understanding the capabilities (and limitations) of Google BigQuery and the Google Predictive API
- Writing and executing queries against BigQuery and the Predictive API
- Understanding how to wire up the services into your application
- Understanding costs involved in using these cloud services from Google
Prerequisite knowledge: RDBMS administration or development; data-mining experience is helpful but not required; you should know Java.
Prerequisite software: You must have a Gmail account to sign up for these services from Google.
