What you'll learn

  • Learn best practices for integrating your workloads with BigQuery
  • Description

    BigQuery provides petabyte-scale data warehousing with consistently high performance for all users. However, users coming from traditional enterprise data warehousing platforms often have questions about how best to adapt their workloads for BigQuery. Chad Jennings explores best practices and integration with BigQuery with special emphasis on loading and transforming data for BigQuery, as well as how BigQuery integrates with the rest of the Google Cloud Platform—including Apache Spark on Google Cloud Dataproc. Chad also discusses Big Query’s SQL dialect and its ability to handle the industry’s most common queries.

    This session is sponsored by Google.

    I’m sorry that you had a bad experience at the session. Feel free to get a hold of me if you’d like me to run you through some of the material that we didn’t get to in the session. We’ve got some details on the BigQuery for Enterprise features that we launched today.

    This was the least interesting of all sessions I attended, perhaps the great Big expectations floundered in the face of very little information from Google other than a Peta byte query which is impressive, but to hear about how and what an enterprise and how all other IT ideas are obsolete from somebody who has worked for 2 years in NYTimes and had the floor for most of the time was disappointing to say the least. I’ll wait until Big Query has something to actually talk about.
