I think students could choose MapReduce or Spark. And about shortest path task. Provided by authors code runs out of memory while checking on cluster. After a lot of time playing with spark paramets and cache/persist i found solution without calculating all distances, but... Also there was no information about spark executors parameters on course...
Simple hint could save a lot of stupidly wasted time.
But it's not major, anyway thanks!

Interesting, useful, informative, accessible (and sometimes funny!) lectures.
Fast responses from instructors/mentors.
Unfortunately, I often spent more time trying to get my assignments to pass the automatic grader than on solving them. This made the course a bit frustrating at times.

Everything in this course is new to me, but it provides me with many practice so I can gradually get familiar with all these new stuff. I find it a bit challenging, but overall it's quite good.

There are a lot of unclear things about the homeworks. So even when you can run your homework successfully in the docker image, you still can't pass the online tests. Besides, the error msgs shown by online test system (not logs) are also unclear. It can't tell you the real reason of failure.

Accent is horrible, it is hard to listen, a lot of mistakes in the words pronunciation. But the idea of course is good.

Quizzes in this course ask questions that are not covered in lectures. Subtitles are full of mistakes and typos. Other than that, the material of the course is very interesting.

The course is not elaborated. Actually it is a FAIL. Bad accent, inappropriate jokes (Hello, Alexey!), not so good topics (for introductory course), paranoid grading system.
Only lectures from Ivan Puzyrevskiy are decent. Thank you, Ivan!
