You will be comfortable explaining the specific components and basic processes of the Hadoop architecture, software stack, and execution environment. In the assignments you will be guided in how data scientists apply the important concepts and techniques such as Map-Reduce that are used to solve fundamental problems in big data. You'll feel empowered to have conversations about big data and the data analysis process.

This course is not suitable for somebody without programming training even though the specialisation overview says otherwise. The course only scratches the surface of the technologies so as at best a high level overview on the tech side. The course is torn between trying to cover the wide range of software tools within the Hadoop umbrella, and trying to create the impression of giving some detail. I think this course and the specialisation is trying to bite off more than it can chew in this short course video format.

Just watched the first couple of lectures and it's of very poor quality: slides, presentation, information content - just about everything is subpar. Also there seems to be a very heavy skew towards advertising the so-called "Cloudera stack". There are better alternatives out there!

This course offers no more than reading the Hadoop tutorials by yourself. I don't need to pay for doing that. The examples are extremely basic and the tests want the student to memorize but no reasoning over the concepts explained.

This course was a good overview of Hadoop but it did not help me learn how to use Hadoop. It needs more projects and hands on application. After completing the class, I am not able to use Hadoop.
