This course was very helpful foe me. It enhanced my knowledge about Big Data Integration. Thank you so much for providing me such important knowledge. Thank you once again.
It was a good course, it could have been better if some examples of Spark were also provided in other Languages like Java, people without having background of python may find it difficult.

While the concepts and materials are good in general, the final project quiz is terrible. It has outdated guides, unclear instructions and out-of-sync hints.
If you want to torture yourself, feel free to try it. If you know nothing about linux or coding, forget about completing this course.

I tried giving zero stars. This course is very poor. In particular the last portion of the class wherein you are tested on things that were not taught. If I had wanted to spend hours in google trying to learn this stuff I would not have spent money on this course.

Final assignment is not working properly. Whatever you choose - you are right.
There is no enough information how to dump tweets into file and how to use that in assignment.
This course doesn't worth any cent and should be either reworked or excluded.
Forcing users to install demo software which requires a registration is just too lame.
Other than that, courser is very boring, introductory, jumps constantly between things and doesn't explain much. Stack overflow and 2 hours would do a better job.

Outdated exercises with no support from instructors or mentors. Many students just cannot finish the courses. This is a shame to keep this PAID course on the platform if nobody is able to keep it up to date or to provide alternative solutions.

I have enrolled in this twice but can't see the course content. Every time I click "go to course" I get directed to the description of the course. Where are the lecture videos and other course content?

Instructors were not responsive at all. Many of the participants faced technical issues in the hands-on exercises involving Spark. Questions in the discussion boards were never answered.

One cannot do anything. One is just busy installing the required software, which only works partially, because the course content have not been updated for several years.

No followup from course mentors and admin. A lot of the software also had bugs and caused errors, which is why there was a need for mentors assistance.

The course cost too much for the gain of knowledge. Feels like this course could be merge with the first or the third course.

the programming assignments are designed very poorly. it takes lot of time to install and trouble shoot the installation.

Poorly designed, no help whatsoever from the staff, Forum is totally worthless. Worst course I ever had on Coursera.
