The course is absolutely fantastic! The instructor is knowledgeable and provided great explanation for all the aspects I wanted to learn.

The instructor was easy to follow. He gave examples before and after we did exercises. He even explained the exercises before we went into them.

Thank you so much , the class was very informative and helpful. The instructor is so awesome and the material was very good too.

There was lots of information, but it was well taught and re-enforced by labs and materials.

Excellent teacher for an excellent course. I was already a little familiar with Hadoop before the class started and now I feel much more knowledgeable
