Using the BigQuery Sandbox

To get started quickly with BigQuery, I recommend you use the BigQuery sandbox, which allows you to try out BigQuery without having to sign up with a credit card. Simply head over to the BigQuery console hereopen_in_new and sign in with your Google account.

NOTE

The offerings for the sandbox version is very generous:

  • 10 GB of storage and 1 TB of processed data for queries every month

  • Database objects like tables and views expire in 60 days

WARNING

The sandbox does not support all BigQuery features and is only intended for trial usage. For instance, statements such as CREATE, INSERT, DELETE and UPDATE are not called. To be able to use all the features, consult our sectionlink about setting up a GCP project.

After signing in with your Google account, click on CREATE PROJECT:

Assign a project name:

Wait until the project is created - this should take no more than 30 seconds.

Running our first SQL query in BigQuey

Once created, we can start writing and also running SQL in the editor provided:

Hitting the RUN button opens up a panel at the bottom showing you the results:

🎉 Congratulations for setting up the BigQuery sandbox and running your first SQL query! For a more comprehensive guide on getting started with BigQuery, we recommend you read our guide here.
