Muy buen instructor. El curso da una idea general de todo el proceso de big data mostrando las herramientas de Azure. Es un curso básico dedicado a quién nunca uso el programa. Para aprender mas detalles, hay que hacer los cursos siguientes....

It´s a little basic introduction and so specific in Azure Microsoft. I have a different idea of this course with more exercise, more details about analytics tools.

I found this course and instructor provided just the right level of detail to get an holistic overview of different technology options out there for processing big data. It has already cleared up a lot of confusion I had before I dig in even deeper in to the training.

A great overview of principles and technologies for working with Big Data. Prior to starting this course, my knowledge was limited to just those buzzwords related to Big Data. But, now I can see a bigger picture of the role of each of those big data technologies. Graeme had done a great job by providing an excellent and comprehensive introduction to the big data topic. The demos presented by Graeme were very useful and lab instructions were accurate. Now, I can start feeling what I'll be learning by the end of the program.

This course is excellent, I'm currently doing the Microsoft Professional Program for Big data and this was the first course, if the rest are as informative and useful as this course I'm going to love it. I had a basic knowledge of big data before starting this course on how it can be used in Azure, but this has given me my first real experience and hands on with that technology.
