Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll create an alert system based on predefined rules, which will be passed as an input parameter to Cloud Dataflow Pipeline. You’ll set up a triggered alert with Cloud BigQuery, and use Google Data Studio to create data visualizations and an overlay on Google Maps. You’ll set up an email notification with the SendGrid Email API that automatically triggers if a threshold value is exceeded.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
