The contents of this course are really practical and to the point. The examples and notebooks are also up to date and are very useful. i really recommend this course if you want to start with Spark.
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!

Too many theory for such little practice. But not bad as an intro.
By Gianluca G•
A little more deep tutorials on spark language would be useful
By Francesco d C•
the assignments could have left more freedom to the student.
By Shubo W•
Feel like the lecture and assignment are a bit irrelevant
By Robert H•
Nice subjects notebooks could be more in-dept
By Peng W•
seems it is not well prepared

it's not enough clear

A disappointing amount of the material presented is out of date (e.g. what environments to use, Watson vs 'Data science experience' )--while fine for some cases, it too frequently borders on intrusive at best to desperately opaque at worst. Clarity of presentations could also be greatly helped. Perhaps focusing more on the why? and so what? aspects would be helpful

The videos are fuzzy, extremely outdated, and don't match up with the actual projects. I couldn't pay much attention to them. Projects were good though.
By Markus W•
Romeo does a very good job of explaining things!
However, the programming assignments are too easy to learn anything from.
By Zhao Q D•
Both exercises and programming tests are too easy. It should be real programming instead of filling in the blanks.
By Jason M•
very simple. homework not challenging enough - just repeating the demos almost exactly.
By Brian A P•
The course content is not well structured and at times very confusing.
By Paulo R C D S•
Very basic and Spark exercises are too easy to learn useful skills
By Yew C L•
Not really fundamental. Beginner will have difficulty to learn.
Big data materials are less discussed specially coding sections
By Martí S C•
I don't understand why the level was marked as advance
By Rahul C•
The course feels old now. Not much interactive.
By Hossein A•
Very good topics very not very good instructors
By Smriti C•
Not a recommended course
By Felipe M M•
Videos are old. It feels like he had a bunch of material and put them together to create this course. For example: There are assignments that they give you the answer because the questions are not supposed to be there. He doesnt teach, instead, he reads a script. The assignments are not challenging and you dont feel like you learned. Horrible and painful.
By Gerardo M•
A lot of the code explained in the video doesn't work with Python 3. The course is missing real examples with updated code working with the latest versions. If I have to go on the internet to learn how to pass each programming assignment of this course because the videos are outdated then I can do this for free, no need to pay the 40 euros/month. Thanks

Course materials is not up to the with the latest state of the IBM Cloud environment. IBM Cloud environment is super buggy. Need to transform this training to make the user use its own environment and not push the IBM Cloud infrastructure.
