My favorite part in this course is really the discussions that are initiated by Raja. Really, these are very, very deep, and insightful discussions. I also got introduced to the subject of big data analysis and big data processing using Hadoop. I’m not claiming that I’m now an expert in these fields, but at least I got the basics, and from now on I can start doing this on my own.
It was a great experience for increasing the expertise on data science. The abstract concepts were explained well and always focused on real applications and business cases. The pace was adjusted as needed to let everyone follow the topics. Week was intense as there are many topics to cover but schedule was well managed to optimize people attention.
