About the Course

In this course, you will learn how to harness the power of Apache Spark and powerful clusters running on the Azure Databricks platform to run data science workloads in the cloud. This is the fourth course in a five-course program that prepares you to take the DP-100: Designing and Implementing a Data Science Solution on Azurec ertification exam. The certification exam is an opportunity to prove knowledge and expertise operate machine learning solutions at a cloud-scale using Azure Machine Learning. This specialization teaches you to leverage your existing knowledge of Python and machine learning to manage data ingestion and preparation, model training and deployment, and machine learning solution monitoring in Microsoft Azure. Each course teaches you the concepts and skills that are measured by the exam. This Specialization is intended for data scientists with existing knowledge of Python and machine learning frameworks like Scikit-Learn, PyTorch, and Tensorflow, who want to build and operate machine learning solutions in the cloud. It teaches data scientists how to create end-to-end solutions in Microsoft Azure. Students will learn how to manage Azure resources for machine learning; run experiments and train models; deploy and operationalize machine learning solutions, and implement responsible machine learning. They will also learn to use Azure Databricks to explore, prepare, and model data; and integrate Databricks machine learning processes with Azure Machine Learning....

This is the worst course out of the entire DP-100 specialization. The entire week 6 exercises could not completed without extensive debugging efforts because the notebooks are outdated. The discussion forum is also not informative in that respect, as errors reported by other learners did not receive any response. Finally, it would be helpful if the staff could properly format the codes as displayed in the quizzes and tests. At present, codes are displayed in individual lines that makes comparison among the options challenging.

90% of the course content and material were great. I definitely have a solid understanding of Apache Spark and how to use it. However, PLEASE update the databricks notebooks! Many of them contain errors or code that throws errors.

Looks like the course is outdated and the 1st excercise doesn't work with error " java.util.NoSuchElementException: An error occurred while enumerating the result " . The instruction to setup the cluster in the course is also outdated and doesn't coincide with Azure UI to setup cluster. Microsoft need to step up its game in Coursera offering. Very disappointed.

Very bad course, the notebooks have a lot of bugs due to versions and there is no support for any doubt.

typos abound; a lot of admin-level coursework that a data scientist would only minimally use
