Our Audition Process:

Please review this helpful video or document to learn more about our course audition process.

About the content:

We are looking for an instructor to develop our Introduction to BigQuery course.

Ideal Course Overview: This course will introduce BigQuery. It will provide an overview of the fully-managed data warehouse, its unique architecture, and its competitors. The course should furthermore discuss BigQuery’s capabilities to handle large amounts of data and its serverless scalability features. The course will demonstrate how data engineers can use GoogleSQL to (sub-)query and use Date/Datetime functions, CTEs, or window functions. Learners will also understand the ins and outs of BigQuery and what to be aware of when working with column-based databases. The prerequisite will be Data Manipulation in SQL. The course will be interactive using the console without access to the BigQuery UI and without write access to BigQuery.

We are looking to begin development in August 2023.
