Excellent! But, I am missing some of the prerequisites since I just wanted to take a chance and try things out, but feel like proceeding further might lead to some stumbling blocks.
I thought this was excellent. Some familiarity with standard SQL is needed to get the most benefit from the materials, and the course is clearly aimed at GCP users.

Material sometimes seems like a patchwork in random order.

some videos are from other courses.. not exist practice

Good intro to concepts. Labs could use more thought.

Good Introduction to Time Series, ML and GCP!
by Sam F•
Had I not read another book on ML, I probably wouldn't understand a lot of material covered here. The course might be a good recap if you already know the material. However for someone who is new to ML, the videos just dumps a lot of definition on you without real explanation in layman term. I ended up having to go to other YouTube videos for explanation.

The course gives you a very limited introduction to ML for trading. More examples of time series models, basic trading strategies, use of ML methods etc are needed.
by Adrien S•
The course was ok but a bit disjointed, especially week 4 which felt like it was "cut-and-pasted" into the course from other courses and didn't have much cohesion.

Actual programming was nonexistent, the assignments just had you run already-written jupyter notebooks

Lacks depth of most topics , too brief of an introduction
by Yaron G•
Not sure it is good material for real tradings bots
by Harshit M•
No labs or quizzes for auditing students
by Guillermo B•
Very few real practical exercises.
by Steven K•
The required labs for passing are not uploaded and there is no support in the discussion forums. This means you can not effectively undertake this course without recreating the required cloud systems yourself.
Also, the content is massively outdated and uses an old version of tensor flow which is now deprecated. The course feels like its around 3 years old but only just been uploaded to coursera now.
Very poor experience in my humble opinion and I want my 2 hours of troubleshooting this back.

A waste of time and money really. Appears to cobbled together from other courses. It doesnt flow, instead jumps around on random topics and none of them link up. It can jump from very basic concepts to suddenly covering complex topics in the in a 2 minute video. The "graded" exercises are pointless. Just following a series of (convoluted) steps and nothing is learned and nothing is actually graded. Dont waste you time with this.

There could be some useful information in there but even with subtitles, the horrible audio quality makes it much too painful to wade through. I gave up and cancelled the course. I'm very disappointed as my cloud experience is entirely AWS and I was looking forward to learning about the Google Cloud alternative. How could a company as strong as Google produce such a staggeringly poor introduction to their platform?
by Luiz P F•
There seems to much detail lacking in both ML and Trading aspects of the course. Moreover, the practice labs are not interactive and don't build up to add much to the content. There's not much exploration during labs either. Overall, a very poor introduction.
by Jodon K•
The lectures are good. The coursework is atrociously bad. It appears to be pulled from a bunch of unrelated courses on both ML and BigQuery. The lectures are worth a listen, but I didn't come away having learned anything about programming ML for Trading.
It not available in China whatsoever. The course works fine. Yet the Qwiklabs are dumb. Even if you log in with a VPN, google will still block you because of geographic location, which is China. You should mention that at the info page or fix the problem.

The finance presentations were well-done. Unfortunately they have nothing to do with the other videos, or the assignments, which are about using GCP and machine learning in general. They have nothing to do with application of the financial material.
by Edward L•
Constant headaches trying to get GCP to work. Even if you do get it to run without crashing (unlikely) you don't really learn much in the labs because they are already 100% written for you - its just run this code we provided.
by Santhosh R S•
More of theory.
Labs are not very poor. Doesn't explain the important part of code.
Intuition is not explained well.
Waste of money

I can't stand the voice and the gestures of one of instructors, they really bother me. Sorry. Leaving because of this.
by Xiaolin Q•
You basically pay for getting an advertisement. Nothing is actually taught except for introducing the "amazing" GCP.
I find better organized and applicable content than this by googling

terrible ... your instructions for unenrolling aren't accurate
