Debugging Hadoop code is pain, but otherwise very nice class. I appreciate that it brings real-world examples and lets you try the code on live system, not only udacity coding platform.

Ridiculously tiny videos, no detailed explanations, disappointed. Please add some more content and don't rush thorough them. Udacity could have done better

This is a solid introduction to Hadoop and MapReduce concepts. The assignments are a good exercise in getting familiar with the basics. There's a lot that this course doesn't cover, but it's enough to get your feet wet with Hadoop and MapReduce concepts.

Very nice, introductory course; Video content is not much; very short and fast, but the exercise questions are well designed and illustrate some real-world applications of MapReduce
