Developer Advocate, Google Cloud

Calling all data practitioners: It's week 5 of Google Cloud Next ‘20: OnAir, and this week we’re covering all things data analytics. This covers the full spectrum of data workflows in Google Cloud, from data ingestion using Dataflow and Pub/Sub to BigQuery's machine learning and geospatial capabilities and data visualization with Looker. And, of course, this week includes a session about BigQuery Omni, which lets you use BigQuery’s capabilities across Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services, and Azure (soon). 

After checking out the sessions below, if you have questions, join me this Friday, August 14 at 9 AM PST for a developer- and operator-focused live recap and Q&A session. Our APAC team is also hosting a recap Friday, August 14 at 11 AM SGT. Several colleagues will join me to discuss their sessions, data analytics news, and future events to look forward to. Join us live to ask our experts questions or watch it on-demand at any time after it airs. Hope to see you then.

We have a lot of great content to share this week, so let’s dig in to a few highlights:

  • Analytics in a multi-cloud world with BigQuery Omni—BigQuery Product Manager Emily Rapp brings BigQuery Omni to life with a demonstration of how it can help multi-cloud users better understand their analytics insights with their data stored across multiple clouds.

  • MLB’s data warehouse modernization—Google Cloud data engineer Ryan McDowell and Robert Goretsky, Major League Baseball's VP of data engineering, detail the challenges Major League Baseball experienced in their traditional data warehouse, their migration to BigQuery, and the benefits they saw.

  • Building a streaming anomaly detection solution at TELUS using Pub/Sub, Dataflow, and BigQuery ML—Google Cloud solutions architect Masud Hasan and TELUS Lead Architect for Cybersecurity Analytics and Enterprise Data Lake Abdul Rahman Sattar break down the Google Cloud-native architecture TELUS uses to stream and analyze real-time events to detect anomalies that might be a security threat to their customers. 

Also, this week's Cloud Study Jam features opportunities for hands-on cloud experience with workshops on BigQuery. These workshops are led by Google Cloud's experts, and feature opportunities to learn more about BigQuery, as well as an opportunity to chat with some of our training teams. Be sure to check out the entire session catalog for this week for a wide variety of content that drills down into Looker, developing data lakes in Google Cloud, building data pipelines, real-time AI, and more.
