About the Course

One of the important topics that every data analyst should be familiar with is the distributed data processing technologies. As a data analyst, you should be able to apply different queries to your dataset to extract useful information out of it. but what if your data is so big that working with it on your local machine is not easy to be done. That is when the distributed data processing and Spark Technology will become handy. So in this project, we are going to work with pyspark module in python and we are going to use google colab environment in order to apply some queries to the dataset we have related to lastfm website which is an online music service where users can listen to different songs. This dataset is containing two csv files listening.csv and genre.csv. Also, we will learn how we can visualize our query results using matplotlib....

This project is really good. Gives you a hands-on experience on PySpark. I was able to write complex queries on my own after a while in this project. Very useful.

Quick and good course on pyspark for someone who is familiar with Pandas. Although some more depth can be added to the course by giving short brief on Spark and how it works.

Ok, but needs a longer explanation of the functions that are used and its range of possibilites.

This project is way too easy. Not tech enough to put on my resume. But may be a good intro of da and pyspark

The forms aren't maintained but its a good intro to pyspark - yet it doesn't include any theory.

The material is too basic, full of typos. The data set is a mess. Not recommended.

Nice to get your hands dirty with pyspark, pretty clear explanations! Personally I'm not a fan of the virtual coursera environement and would much rather have a link to the dataset. Many of the quiz answers have multiple correct responses. Some project question's answers could be cleaner.

The course is too short. For analysis similar query was repeated.
