What people are saying

machine learning

To be honest, this is one of the best courses I've ever watched on Data Science & Machine Learning with Scala.

Finally different Machine Learning algorithms are exposed so you will able to get a complete knowledge on ML&DS by boarding several projects to practice more.

Excellent course and explanations are great I find this course very well defined as an introduction to Scala and Spark, with examples of Machine Learning applications.

He should interpret the results and how they can be applied to the current machine learning problem instead of just preprocess data, train, and test and video end.

I hope more machine learning models and preprocessing techniques can be explained with Scala and Spark in the video.

Good explanation on contents so far good lecture Little faster Very good content and lecture So far so good Could be worst :P Very clear More detail in the machine learning section would be helpful.

I would recommend this for anyone interested in learning Spark, Scala and using them for Machine Learning.

so far

Good very superficial content, missing a lot of details and good practices The course seems so far to be what I expected Good O professor pode reduzir e diidir mais as aulas de explicação, elas são longas e podem dispersar o aluno It was good, now i want to see the true power of scala, beyond the basics..... Scala or RPA?

So far so good Great class overall!

So far the course was simple and easy to understand and follow.

I've taken a few courses on Udemy and this was by far the best so far, I was always excited to boot up the next Lecture.

So far I encountered only minor issues (nothing on installation using Windows 10, minor formatting issue on using 1 sample / exercise file).

However, so far, it's being really poor and the only reason I gave it more than nothing is because the content is engaging and the author has good teaching skills regardless the poor content.

I am halfway through the course and so far I am loving it!

big data

This course gives a clear overview about the relation between Scala, Spark, Big Data and machine learning.

I've learned a lot about Big Data and using Spark and the Scala programming language to create Machine Learning models.

This is THE BEST COURSE I have taken on UDEMY in Spark and Big Data Analytics.

Course did not hit on a lot of big data pipelines , at least an introduction to spark + scala.

The course is well structured and targeted to give you the base knowledge on how to use scala and spark to solve Big Data and ML problems.

This course gives a good overview of spark for Big data, basic scala script coding , spark UI in zeppelin and databricks notebooks, and machine learning.

Recommend to people who wants to get a basic understanding of spark in big data and machine learning fields.

easy to follow

Its easy to follow, and just long enough.

It has given me an high level understanding of Spark and Spark ML Good pace, very easy to follow yet packed with valuable information.

easy to follow along!

I think it was not deep enough to feel one as comfortable with using Scala in data analysis Easy to follow, course structure is well organized.

I find it easy to follow him.

brilliantly explained Explanation is clear and easy to follow.

Very easy to follow awesome!

other courses

I am looking forward to enroll in other courses offered by him in future.

Compared to other courses it skips RDD's and focuses on Dataframes which seems to be the most future oriented approach.

Enough hands on example and guidance to enhnancement of skills beyond the course I am an R programmer with zero Java experience; This course has helped me learn all necessary steps to analyze data using similar steps I utilize in R. Other courses have made assumptions that I know some Java which greatly affect my understanding of scala.

good course, but considerable overlap with other courses from Pierian.

Content is clear, speach is good As all the other courses of Jose, this is again a great one!
