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.

Pretty interesting course and l now feel reasonably confident starting my own projects using spark. Only issue was with submitting some of the assignments. A lot of the time they would not work when I tried to submit. I eventually got them to submit using a different computer. This may be a problem on my end but from what I could tell from the discussions, many people had similar problems.

It was indeed a treat learning this course. It covers hadoop platform using theory as well as practical examples. The coding assignments will boost your confidence and interest. The Course was designed with proper mixture of coding assignments and other quizzes.

The subtitles have many errors

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.

Basic Understanding of hadoop

It's a good introduction to Hadoop Platform course, but if you want understand how to make sophisticated programs (improve your coding skill) or how to create Hadoop cluster it is not your course.

Great course with great explanations. I just want to suggest to use more visual examples during your explanations, I mean, it would be nice to see live examples of code and executions running.

Good for initial learning. Spark lessons ... more clear explanation are needed to understand properly

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

I wish I put a 5 star on this course but the Spark's part is ... poorly explained.

Sometimes a bigger explanation is needed, I foun it necesary in the Spark lesson.

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.

Course content is good. Speed to response and instructor help in discussion group must be improved to get 5-star from me.

The course is very good but some essential aspects just got a very sketchy overview (like e. g. Hive).
The time effort increases dramatically from 1st to 5th week: just a set of lectures and 1 quiz in the 1st week (1 hour) to 3 quizzes and 2 programming assignments in the last week (7-8 hours). The 5th week got also a different lecturer which was very hard to follow.
There are definitely required at least basic python skills as well as unix command line familiarity.
Nevertheless there was a lot of fun with this course and I would recommend it to everyone who'd like to get a fast overview about Hadoop and MapReduce.

Interesting course for hadoop beginners
