A very nice introduction to Apache Spark and it's environment. As a bonus, it's also a very nice refresher to your basic statistics!!! Great course!

Its a great experience especially with this course. I appreciate Romeo the way he designed the assignments. It brings out the clear understanding.

It's a good course, good practices of IBM Watson Studio, Apache Spark and Python programming skills. Although would like to see more specific content about data science like methods and linear algebra libraries and techniques. But it was satisfatory, btw.

The course was designed some years ago and now it needs some update considering the technology has changed a bit. Even after all of that, the teachers are really good and they provide high-quality education. Really glad I could be part of this course.

This course gives you nice experience with Apache Spark. There is lot of update going on interface which creates few problem but discussion forum helps you out. Good for beginners in Data Science who have basic knowledge of python and SQL.

It's an excellent course for anybody who wants to learn the basic of Spark, Watson Studio, and data analysis. It's also a good reminder for anybody well acquainted to the subject and want to know how to deal with it in Watson Studio

there were two errors i noticed if you could correct them - check the last assignment in the grading system it has parameters given which are not required and the last quiz there is a ques about PCA pls correct the options

I was just wondering, is the content a bit short? Are there any more details on practising writing functions and text rather than an hour videoing and quiz? I believe intense programming skills practise is more efficient

Nice for a basic introduction. I really got to know a lot about the basics of 'data' and spark applications. However, the exercises and assignments seemed a bit too simple. Also could do with a few more extra readings.

El curso es una introducción muy básica, lo más interesante son los ejercicios opcionales como el de node-red. Me esperaba que se aplicaran buenas prácticas en los ejercicios, pero como introducción está bien.

As an introductory course on data science and manipulation of large data sets, the course proved to be quite comprehensive and technically capable of leading the student to an understanding of all content.

I learned a lot from this introduction and appreciated the amount of coding that the lecturer did during many of the videos. Would have liked more involved programming challenges at the end of each week.

Good course with a good Instructor. It's a real basic course and good for beginners, though you need to have to dive into Python and Spark on your own to follow the course and the assignments. :)

Great Introductory course for Big Data Analytics. The exercises and the assignments had the appropriate level of difficulty considering this was an advanced course. Thank you IBM and Coursera.

Deserves 5 Star if the contents are updated such as removing redundant codes in Video lectures, upgrading Python and Spark to latest version etc. Overall a great place to start Scalable DS.

La semana 2 es un ladrillo, se explican los temas de ingeniería para el procesamiento masivo de datos, pero la explicación no es muy pedagógica que digamos. Por lo demás estuvo muy bien.

Very good course for a hands on overview introduction to the topic, and the associated tools (particularly Apache PiSpark).
Some issues with the auto grader encountered sometimes.

There should be some links that are helpful towards this course, as it is an intermediate course, what courses are available in Coursera prior to this as a beginner lesson.

Good overall,instructor was very good,but I feel more examples could be used especially when explaining multidimensional vector space and such basics of graphs

There are a lot of not updated sections, sometimes it confuses me because in some videos he talks about how we will use Node RED but then we don't use it.

I would like to suggest to update the videos in order to reflect the operations in Python 3.x rather than 2.x but everything else was great!

Romeo is a great instructor and I love his lectures, however some of the quiz questions are very trivial and aren't explained on his video tutorials...

Seria ótimo se atualizassem o conteúdo do vídeo para reproduzir a versão atual do sistema e do Python, porém em teoria o conteúdo não deixou a desejar.

A bit on the easy side especially if you are proficient with SQL. But otherwise a decent into to spark and nice flavour of data analysis with python.

Really good course to provide an overview of working within IBM's cloud platform offerings. This course provides the basics of ApacheSpark as well.

Pretty fun introduction, assignments were moslty copy-paste from instruction videos, so you don't get to 'learn' the right way in my opinion

I taught the course would be more advanced. Terminology is confusing at first, but besides that, the assignments aren't so challenging.
