For the section called:
Spark Dataframes from External Sources,

the file ./data/views_2022_01_01_000000.csv is not in the directory, so no users can get through or past this section of the course.

This is the third place where I’ve attempted to alert you to this. Please place the needed file otherwise this remainder of the course can’t be accessed and it’s a waste of time for everyone.

Sorry, I mean that “wiki_uniq_march_2022.csv” is not in the directory etc.
