Everything in this course is new to me, but it provides me with many practice so I can gradually get familiar with all these new stuff. I find it a bit challenging, but overall it's quite good.
The course takes you from basic level , step level .But It is quite fast for beginners , you may need pause video in between and try to understand the concept.

The content of course is quite good and I really appreciate the instructors taking time to prepare the videos. The grading system for the programming assignments is appalling though. Coding tasks are not hard, but hours are spent deciphering cryptic messages from the automatic grader and little feedback is provided for debugging.

This course has potential to improve and to be a very good course, but serious problems with the assignments or the graders, and the lack of care in the assembly of some lessons and their corresponding quizzes make impossible to recommend it to anyone interested in a serious and high quality course on the topics of big data.

Very difficult to understand the instructors accents
by Dmitry P•
Terrible, almost useless subtitles. Inappropriate and annoying jokes (hi, Alex). Different sound levels in lectures. Materials aren't correspond to questions, or rather to expected answers. Strange order: two lectures about Spark then test about Hadoop and vise versa. And so on, and so on.
Waste of time and energy, but I have to pass it.

Some online tools that are really important for assignments do not work for days and noone in the stuff answers in the forum and neither in the slack channel dedicated to the course.
