Amazing! Dan can illustrate the idea clearly, and the pace is just great.
There're only 3 main course videos, so you can finish this course quite quickly. The content is easy (since the idea of MapReduce is easy?). And there're some hands-on practice helping to give you a sense of HDFS and the mapper and reducer code in Python. The installation and commands of the software is quite simple because a pre-installed Hadoop is offered along with the VM. So what you need to do is just to create a VM with the given virtual disk. There's a problem actually annoying me. The review questions and the project description are so confusing that I skip some and guess some.
Great course! The teacher has the ability to make hard things easy to understand. I never encounter any math problem through this class. The labs are easy to complete but if you have interest in how the whole system is running you can dig into the details of the given material. It's impressive how powerful Matlab is.
