Google Developer Essentials

Google via Qwiklabs

Overview

This introductory-level quest shows application developers how the Google Cloud ecosystem could help them build secure, scalable, and intelligent cloud native applications. You learn how to develop and scale applications without setting up infrastructure, run data analytics, gain insights from data, and develop with pre-trained ML APIs to leverage machine learning even if you are not a Machine Learning expert. You will also experience seamless integration between various Google services and APIs to create intelligent apps.

Syllabus

  • Weather Data in BigQuery
    • In this lab you analyze historical weather observations using BigQuery and use weather data in conjunction with other datasets. This lab is part of a series of labs on processing scientific data.
  • Classify Images of Clouds in the Cloud with AutoML Vision
    • AutoML Vision helps developers with limited ML expertise train high quality image recognition models. In this hands-on lab, you will learn how to train a custom model to recognize different types of clouds (cumulus, cumulonimbus, etc.).
  • Entity and Sentiment Analysis with the Natural Language API
    • The Cloud Natural Language API lets you extract entities, and perform sentiment and syntactic analysis on a block of text. In this hands-on lab you’ll learn how to extract entities and sentiment from text using the Cloud Natural Language API.
  • Google Assistant: Build a Restaurant Locator with the Places API
