The sessions where clearly explained and focused. Some of the exercises contained slightly confusing hints and information, but I'm sure those mistakes will be ironed out in future iterations. Thanks!

Excellent overview of Spark, including exercises that solidify what you learn during the lectures. The development environment setup tutorials were also very helpful, as I had not yet worked with sbt.

Interesting and useful course. Could be better if the videos were not as blurred, which made it sometimes hard to read the slides.

It was short and sweet. However, I wish the assignments had more unit tests to fill gaps where the instructions weren't clear.

Challenging but very enlightening. Requires you to read the docs and figure out a lot of stuff on your own. My kind of course!

Pretty nice course. But with one comment on the grading system, sometime the comment & message is not that intuitive enough.

Very complet and accurate about Spark with Scala. Maybe an assignement with MongoDB or the like would be a plus
