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.
A step by step approach stating from basic big data concept extending to Hadoop framework and hands on mapping and simple MapReduce application development effort.\n\nVery smooth learning experience.

The course majorly teaches you the importance of big data in first 2 weeks. 3rd week, it gives you good brief of big data tools and technology. Good course for foundations.

It was a comprehensive course that adequately covered introduction to big data. I think only in week 3, there should be a bit more details and practices on Map and Reduce
por Cheng-shuo Y•
The map-reduce is really intriguing. However, I think this class is kind of more suitable for those who are really new to this field. Anyway, a lot of things are learned.

Very interesting course and well explained course . It is very good as a foundation course. Minimum hardware needs should be mentioned at the very begging of the course!
por Gajendra B D•
It was a Good course to start with the Big Data. The content is also good and properly arranged. Good Instructors. I will suggest this course as a starter for Big Data.
por Manish S•
It is a good course for people who have no prior knowledge of Big Data. The course doesn't get into much details of Hadoop but does provides an overview of MapReduce.
por Andrea P•
A bit too simple, but it's understandable given the name of the course. Good broad and general introduction to the world of Big Data.
Useful initial steps into Hadoop
por Lim J H G•
A good place to start for those who are interested in learning about Big Data, the technicality of week 3 can be a little challenging but very useful nonetheless!
por Estanislao H A•
Thank you very much, iss still hard to work with thins opensources platforms cause many of the configs can mess up the practices, but, everything else is great.
I found the course to be informative. I found the questions in the assignments to be challenging sometimes. These questions require one to by heart the answers,

I think it is too much basic course that can help much a beginner in that sector for the beginning. Both teachers have nicely explained their topics.

Basically, first two weeks were like memory training exercise.
A lot of general concepts unsupported by practical examples.
Only third week is interesting.
por Anshu V•
It was excellent and good content to have knowledge on BIG Data overview and after every chapter their is exercise quiz test which is good to get confidence.

Debería tener información más actualizada, por ejemplo, el Hadoop presenta algunos problemas pues ha habido cambios en la aplicación y su forma de instalarla

A parte mais interessante é a última, da semana 3 e é super curta. Poderia ter sido estendida em detrimento de algumas partes que se repetem muito do início.
por Pedro L•
I had some problems with the last part of this course (when we were getting started with Hadoop), and I didn´t see anything to help solving those problems.

Faltó detallar en qué consistía una máquina virtual y ofrecer el comando para desactivar el safe mode, tuve que investigar para completar la última tarea.
por Sylvain T•
So much better than in the first version of the specialization! the peer reviewed project is a welcome addition to help understanding map reduce concepts
The steps provided are good. Practical way of teaching. The course navigation links are sometime confusing. it does not start from where you had paused.
This is is a very fundamental course. It tells me a big picture of what is Hadoop and how it is applied. But only the course of last week is new to me.
por Christoph H•
Good course, I know it's only the intro, but I would have liked some more hands-on exercises. Most of the course consists of watching videos.
por Tamoghna M•
It was a very informative experience on basics of big data management. However, it would be better to have more challenging questions and assignments.
por Shaurya M•
It was a great experience. This helped me with basics in Big data and also the mentors were great with their knowledge in the this field.
Thank you :)
por Peter B•
Good Introduction and overview, especially if you are very new. If you already new a little bit you can do fast orward the course and fill your gaps.
por Suresh V•
Very nice introduction to Big Data. This is were you decide whether to take the blue pill or the red pill (sorry that's from the 1999 movie Matrix )
