A very nice introduction to Apache Spark and it's environment. As a bonus, it's also a very nice refresher to your basic statistics!!! Great course!

A perfect course to pace off with exploration towards sensor-data analytics using Apache Spark and python libraries.\n\nKudos man.

Nice for a basic introduction. I really got to know a lot about the basics of 'data' and spark applications. However, the exercises and assignments seemed a bit too simple. Also could do with a few more extra readings.

As an introductory course on data science and manipulation of large data sets, the course proved to be quite comprehensive and technically capable of leading the student to an understanding of all content.

I learned a lot from this introduction and appreciated the amount of coding that the lecturer did during many of the videos. Would have liked more involved programming challenges at the end of each week.

Good course with a good Instructor. It's a real basic course and good for beginners, though you need to have to dive into Python and Spark on your own to follow the course and the assignments. :)

Deserves 5 Star if the contents are updated such as removing redundant codes in Video lectures, upgrading Python and Spark to latest version etc. Overall a great place to start Scalable DS.

Very good course for a hands on overview introduction to the topic, and the associated tools (particularly Apache PiSpark).
Some issues with the auto grader encountered sometimes.

Good overall,instructor was very good,but I feel more examples could be used especially when explaining multidimensional vector space and such basics of graphs

There are a lot of not updated sections, sometimes it confuses me because in some videos he talks about how we will use Node RED but then we don't use it.

Seria ótimo se atualizassem o conteúdo do vídeo para reproduzir a versão atual do sistema e do Python, porém em teoria o conteúdo não deixou a desejar.

Really good course to provide an overview of working within IBM's cloud platform offerings. This course provides the basics of ApacheSpark as well.

The Grader template in the beginning is very confusing when doing first assignment. The response from Instructor should be quick.

Most of the video's subtitles need to be synced, it was hard to fully understand the Indian accent without subtitles.

Some errors like lambdas are not working anymore with Python, some typos like in Assignment 4.1 and missing steps.

Some of the courses have out of date instructions, or the methods recommended are deprecated.

Good! Would have liked it even more if there was more data analysis involved using IOT data.

At first, I'm not sure what to do and it is hard for me to set up environment.
