Have you ever heard about Big Data?
Technologies such as HDFS, MapReduce, Spark?
Always wanted to learn these new tools but missed concise starting material? Don't miss this specialization either!

The specializaiton contains 3 courses out of 5 on Coursera platform. Subscribe and we will notify you about updates!
About Specialization
There are five concise courses teaching you from basics of MapReduce and offline processing to the advances in real-time processing with applications in big scale machine learning. If you are looking for the ways to expand your knowledge in the field of data engineering / analysis on the big scale, then this specialization is just right up your street.


Real Dev Environment
In comparison to existing online courses we would like to provide listeners with access to real computational cluster to expand their skills and knowledge.
All-Round Team
Big data evolves so fast, that nobody can move with the same speed. Nobody can know everything about Big Data. For this reason we put together our big and all-round team. All together we can explain everything.
All-in-browser Sandbox
All-in-browser sandbox configuration for the best Big Data learning experience. You could study Big Data from any device with an Internet connection. Be it Windows, Linux, Mac OS, mobile or tablet device.

Reviews from Coursera

What should I know?

• A student needs to have programming experience in Python.
• A student should also need to complete a basic course on Algorithms prior to starting this specialization.
• Introductory course on Machine Learning is not required, but it will be helpful to grasp material of the third course
(Machine Learning at Scale) easier.
