Good structure, very insightful. Ideally I would have liked more time in fewer areas then the broad depth of this course. Still well worth doing and fun.
Fantastic course, but there are some week points: Good: Bill Howe is knowledgeable and his insight is worth taking the course just for this alone. I understood more about database theory then ever before. I got into the internals of Big data and I loved it. Very flexible course and assignment structure. If you have a Big data project and want to run with it as a part of the course you can do this! Bad: The assignment workload is crazy. I found myself spending hours just getting my python programs to compile. However once done I found my programming skills were pushed to the limit (amatuer C++ programmer delving into Python). Allot of breath, with a fair bit of depth. This is not an easy course. Cecillia Aragon's lectures on visualisation are fantastic too. I loved them and the content within. Great course, Tough but well worth doing.
