Cloud BigQuery boasts extremely fast processing—terabytes of information in seconds, petabytes in minutes—while remaining straightforward to query via standard SQL. Best of all, BigQuery is accessible through a number of methods, including web console and API. In this hands-on lab, you’ll use another pathway (Google Cloud Shell) to perform a series of BigQuery operations, including creating a dataset, defining a table and its schema, importing data into that table and, finally, running a series of SQL queries on the BigQuery platform.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
