Big Data with PySpark Beta

Welcome to the beta release for Big Data with PySpark!
You can find a link to the course here.

Why take this course?
This course introduces Big Data both conceptually and with hands on practice. If you’ve heard about big data, but weren’t quite sure what it means, or what is different when working with big data, then this course is for you. Likewise, if you have tried to load a dataset and crashed your computer, this course will teach you the practical techniques to fix the problem, and the conceptual foundation to understand what happened.

To that end allow me to introduce @michellemcsweeney and @andreahassler who worked to create this course. They’re here to answer any questions you have.

As a reminder, you can find an explanation of the process for beta testing here.
