I love the course. It goes deep into the foundations, and then finishes up with an actual lab where you learn by practice. I greatly benefited from it and feel I have achieved a milestone in big data.
First of all i would like to take this opportunity to thanks the instructors the course is well structured and explained the foundations with real world problems with easy to understand the concepts.

The course provides a solid introduction to Big Data, even if your knowledge is Big Data as a buzzword. Definitely recommended

A little slow to start, but probably good to understand the whole picture. The hands on Hadoop is A+ for me as a beginner.
To me, I feel there're too many common senses were talked about. Would be much better if we go strait to the key points...

It would have been nice to understand how to delete directories in Hadoop so that the final exercise was more productive.
Overall a good introduction course to Big Data. It could have been more condensed and contain more programming exercises.

I'm rating the course 4 start because the course is very old and i think its now time for the instructors to update it
von Reby C•
The course was well taught, more material needed for the advanced Big data introduction and more practical is needed.
von Jonathan H•
Some of the terms introduced in the course were not explained clearly for learners with zero background on big data.
von Temesgen G•
Great Course , althogh the instructor could've covered the topics much faster , i watched most videos at 1.25x speed
von Marwan S•
A lot of the times there were too much to absorb in a single video; so quizzes were overwhelming
von Jonas G•
Good introduction into Big Data. Sometimes it needs to be more in depth for example about running map reduce jobs.
von José E M•
It is a very interesting course with a lot of information to have a deep introduction to Big Data,

I was a good course to start Big Data. The real life examples were good to understand and correlate with topics.
von Akash R•
If you a beginner and don't even know what Big Data is? it's good for you, its don't provide much practical...
von Peter S•
Great course about Big Data and it's uses, with a quick overview of the main existing tools and how they work.
von rochelle c•
This topic is new for me, therefore some of the topics required supplemental explanations to fully understand.

First two weeks are too much theory , but i guess that is needed for clear understanding of an awesome week 3.
