This course is very well done.

Instructor has been explaining the concepts with more practical direction

Taking into consideration that this was the first edition of the course, I can say that it has been a nice journey. I am glad about the fact that Heather managed to expose a bit of the Spark internals and not only talk about querying data and how easily this can be made by using Spark (as most of the Spark oriented courses consist of).

In addition to this, I could listen to Heather all day long - she's a great presenter and has wonderful teaching skills.

However, the homework has outlined some neglected aspects of the course:

- vague description or requirements

- not strongly related to the presented content (the lectures outlined partitioning mechanism, but the homework 2 did not require it...)

- not so meaningful feedback, except for some tests failing/passing - I would have expected something like you did ok, but your job took longer than expected; check out this and that

Overall, it's been a highly expected course and it was nice to get a broader outlook on Spark. I hope that there will be more courses (and more detailed) related to Spark ecosystem in the near future.

Great course, I learned a lot through the course. However, some of the lectures are quite long and could do with being broken down in to more smaller segments.
