Great course, keep up the good work.

I learned so much from this course! It was amazing how Dr. Miller used concepts that were meticulously built up in the earlier courses, such as evaluation strategy, functional collections, reactive programming, and associativity, to describe the core of Spark in only four units. As someone coming from more of a statistics background, I started this specialization only to learn Spark, so I wasn't always sure how relevant learning the more theoretical underpinnings of Scala would be. It turns out that it was pretty essential, while also just making me a better programmer. Looking forward to the capstone!

Very well taught and insightful! Especially the combination of slides, and additionally drawn notes on that slides, I found very good.

Challenging but very enlightening. Requires you to read the docs and figure out a lot of stuff on your own. My kind of course!
