TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO BIG DATA
Very interesting course. Explained concepts I'd heard of but didn't really know about. It is a foundation course for a specialization, it's not enough by itself but very good as a foundation course.
Great Introduction to Big Data. I did not realize how important it is for different expertise to come together in order to draw meaningful value from the data. It is not only a programmers world.
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.
Having a great and deep start about Big Data. this course helps me understand how big data is very useful to solve real-world problems before it happens or that situation was where a problem occurs.
