Lab challenges are hands-on labs with the gloves off. You jump into an auto-provisioned cloud environment and are given a goal to accomplish. No instructions, no hints. To pass, you'll have a limited time to demonstrate your problem-solving skills and get the checks that inspect the state of your lab environment.
Google BigQuery is a data warehouse in the cloud. It provides a wide range of features that make it a popular choice for enterprise data warehouse needs. Its support of standard Structured Query Language (SQL) is germane to this lab challenge.
In this lab challenge, you need to use BigQuery to answer questions by leveraging data and the Structured Query Language (SQL). You will be querying publicly available datasets in BigQuery.
This is a real environment, which means you can prove your knowledge in an applied way, substituting multiple choice questions for a dynamic performance-based exam situation.
