Data analysis has replaced data acquisition as the bottleneck to evidence-based decision making --- we are drowning in it. Extracting knowledge from large, heterogeneous, and noisy datasets requires not only powerful computing resources, but the programming abstractions to use them effectively. The abstractions that emerged in the last decade blend ideas from parallel databases, distributed systems, and programming languages to create a new class of scalable data analytics platforms that form the foundation for data science at realistic scales.

Very broad and instructive course with a good level of theory, many practical examples. Good teaching. Some nice assignments but a lake of assignement for the 4th week\n\nI recommand this course
Great course that strikes a balance between teaching general principles and concepts, and providing hands-on technical skills and practice. The lessons are well designed and clearly conveyed.
I like the breadth of coverage of this class. Each of the exercise is a gem in that I get to learn something new also. I would highly recommend this even to experience practitioner also.
Good! I like the final (optional) project on running on a large dataset through EC2. The lectures aren't as polished and compact as they could be but certainly a very valuable course.
