A very brief and easy course to provide the common language of data engineering for future exploration.

Good starting grounds. Some answers are not clear, such as some "all options are correct" in questions asking where exceptions are. Voice guide would be a good improvement as well. Content could be more in detail and well connected, even for beginner level.

The content is simple, concise and easy to understand but lacked any practical exercises or application especially in week 4 where you learn SQL. Why not imbed an in-browser SQL platform to practice all of those functions?

Plus: easy learning, hopefully a good glossary of terms.

Minus: monocord voice on videos, uninspiring quizzes (rote learning) and assignments (ambitious: could have been made into quizzes), the "more reading" links seem to be the first google search results on the topics, very few concepts spread over 4 weeks, and mostly definitions and lists.
