Advanced Amazon Redshift: Table Layout and Schema DesignIr al Laboratorio
This was a good lab with the exception of the long wait times at several points within the lab (the table loads from S3). It makes you rush through it because that eats up a good 40 minutes or so of lab time, and it would be nice to be able to really study the queries and results.
driver didn't work
Queries took longer time than planned. Unable to complete the entire lab exercise
Some comparisons do not match with the documentation. I thought that might be because the compression encodings change by time since the lab documentation is last updated
Felt like there should have been a lot more interaction and information provided about what was happening in Tasks 5-7.
The Lab was good except that data loading took 40 minutes. 10 minutes for each large set (4 total). I did not mind the wait but it really cut the lab time close. I had a very short time left to run the queries in part 7. I think the LAB needs another 15 minutes to be safe.
