I'm forced to give 5 stars. I don't want to have a certification on a poor quality course (another coursera mistake). This material needs tremendous amount of work to get finished and revised.

Super hands on introduction to key Hadoop components, such as Spark, Map Reduce, Hive, Pig, HBase, HDFS, YARN, Squoop and Flume.\n\nI can't wait to the next course on the specialization.

Need to have more short hands on assignments. Some of the assignments were too complicated.

The course is well documented, instructors are highly qualified. It covers more theoretical aspects of Big Data Stacks. Once should have some prior knowledge of Big Data to finish this course, specifically to complete the coding assignments. If there were a real world use case of big data world, the course simply would be great.

Good course to give you potentially chaotic concepts. Prerequisites, that are not must but will definitelly help a lot: some basic linux command line fluency, basic python knowledge. Without those it still might be doable but might be a total nightmare. Many comments judge harshly some of the instructors. I would disagree on those, especially about class 3 instructor. The guy has a good way to present his concepts. Last week is the best.

that could be more concise and clear. for better learning, watch videos, then do coding. then watch videos again.

Overall the teaching and structure of the course is great. However, I guess some of the assignment, especially some of the quizzes could really use some more explanation since relevant points might not be covered during the course. So does the programming assignment, I guess maybe it could be due to the focus of this course is not yet writing better scripts, but one thing I think that is missing is how to combine those snippets to make a pipeline to automate the task or make the task reproducible.

Excellent place to start learning Hadoop! It was a bit advanced at times for me but I could figure things out after reviewing the course materials 2-3 times.

This Course is really help full and the content of the course is more than enough to understand the workflow and architecture of the technology. Thanks:)

Great beginners course. Could be somewhat deeper, and probably longer, though. Maybe more lessons about map reduce and hdfs, more lessons on hive/beeline. But, nonetheless, a great course.

Very Informative course. highly recommended for those who are eager to learn more about HPC and Hadoop and Spark frameworks.

Was good and Interesting... But after last Course (Introduction) this is a massive leap and is not suitable for someone who has no Coding Background - I don't and I suffered way too much trying to figure out all taht stuff, I think this is not for Business Professionals by itself.

It is good overview of technologies. But to little of programming examples and details.
In general, it was great! Thank you!

It was interesting. Often times it was a bit difficult to catch the speed of the course. But it provided a quick overview of the Hadoop framework.

Speaker partly hard to understand. Quizzes / assignments were not really challenging, rather copy & paste. Algorithms and implementation of tools was not covered thoroughly (not even read up material provided). Anyway - gave a good overview of the framework and its components. Thanks a lot!

It's a good course that covers multiple platforms in the Hadoop ecosystem in a relatively short amount of time in addition to providing an introduction to Spark. That very aspect is also something of a disadvantage because most of the topics are dealt with at a rather shallow level, and some of the details come across as pieces of facts missing a clear coherent connection.
Nonetheless, it is a good beginner course, and it would be difficult to expect to learn more given the constraints of time and the vast amount of content there is in this field.

Good introductionary course to get familiar with Hadoop and Spark.
Could dig a bit deeper. It's only 5 weeks long, which accounts for half a trimester. Two of those makes one full size class.
