Serverless Data Processing with Dataflow (SDPF)

 

Course Overview

This training is intended for big data practitioners who want to further their understanding of Dataflow in order to advance their data processing applications. Beginning with foundations, this training explains how Apache Beam and Dataflow work together to meet your data processing needs without the risk of vendor lock-in.The section on developing pipelines covers how you convert your business logic into data processing applications that can run on Dataflow. This training culminates with a focus on operations, which reviews the most important lessons for operating a data application on Dataflow, including monitoring, troubleshooting, testing, and reliability.
