My understanding of Big Data technologies was really enhanced by this course. I have decided to pursue more of these underlying technologies after this course. Good job

Very Useful Course. Course material is massive and well prepared for the modern industry demands.

Good structure, well explained but some of the examples presented are starting to be outdated. Solid theoretical presentation.

good practical materials which help to better understand the theories from previous courses

The course could use a programming assignment to go along with the lectures.

Much better than Part 1. This course mostly shows the applications of the topics covered in the Cloud Computing Concepts course using the popular tools from when this course was recorded. There is a decent amount of redundant material from course overlap and this course could be made more concise, but there is still a decent amount of new material. You can probably pass most of the quizzes from knowledge gained in the other course though.

The content is very good, the course gives a wide overview on the topics. On the other hand for me it was a bit slow and found many repetitions in the course videos, the exams could have been harder and could have helped to deepen understanding a bit more. I was lacking the programming assignments, as well.

The course was focused too much on theory. It didn't have any programming assignments, which made the course less interesting.

The course is good, gives you an overview of many important technologies, although the last module is too superficial.

There are very small quizzes in this course. First two parts were much more better and more interesting

It looks like the course was influenced by reviews from 'Cloud Computing Concepts, Part 1' course that contained complaints about the programming assignment, fast pace of the course and complex quizes. (I don't share these complaints, for me that course was incredible)
This course gives a too high-level overview of the topics presented. Also, like in the previous part of the course, Mr. Campbell's lectures are too long, boring and hard to understand. This is disappointing since the topics in his lectures are really imporant. The quizes are too easy, no programming assigment, there's just no chance to check if you understood the material deep enough.
Spark, CAP theorem, Storm and a lot of other stuff is covered by Cloud Computing Concepts in a more informative and compact way.
Almost no imformation about the TensorFlow. It deserves at least a lessson devoted to it.

Quizzes are trivial. Makes the certification worthless.
Prof. Campbell is not a good lecturer.
The topics are treated mostly superficially, then suddenly go into too much detail sometimes (how to use IntelliJ IDEA, machine learning).
Subtitles are very buggy.
I enjoyed Mr. Farivar's talks much more, it seems like he knows what he is talking about and his presentations are well structured.

As for part1, I find the course is not well prepared and does not go deep into the topics. Overall disappointed. Cloud computing concepts courses are of much higher quality.

course content is good, but the lectures are monotonous and put you to sleep.

This was an exasperating course - it is at times incoherent, at times just plain reading out of a teleprompter, and at times referring to assignments or slides which do not exist.
The quizzes can be safely tackled by going through 5% of the coursework and that is being generous. A deficit that a programming section could easily overcome.
I do feel bad for the instructors, i am sure it is not what they had in mind when they set out to design the course. Unfortunately it is hardly what one expects from a course part of a paid specialisation.

I've never had an instructor that was so clearly phoning it in. What's more, lots of the information presented about how the Cloud works is factually inaccurate, and no one has bothered to correct it. I strongly suggest that working professionals with even a basic level of experience with the Cloud (read: clearly more than the instructor) simply save themselves the aggravation.
