Good class for a quick summary of a lot of options within Python. As a R user looking to possibly make some move to Python, it was helpful to see how it could possibly replace some of my workflow. The only criticism is that some of the packages/modules that were covered, it may be best to have separate courses for them as individuals that didn't have much background in python or data analytics, the pace was probably too fast.
I found the class very helpful. I went into the course with some background on cluster but had not used the cluster before. The course gave simple hands on examples of how to run and kill processes on the cluster. Sai explained how to avoid common pitfalls that new users encounter when using the cluster. I learned a lot about the capabilities of the cluster that I did not previously know. I feel that I can start using the cluster after this introduction. Sai did a good job of answering specific questions that we had about using the cluster.
