MITx Big Data & Analytics Training

MITFor those looking for online Big Data & Analytics Training, I recently came across these two offerings (and a discount code) that may be of interest:

  • Tackling the Challenges of Big Data (Starts July 7, 2015): This Digital Programs course will survey state-of-the-art topics in Big Data, looking at data collection (smartphones, sensors, the Web), data storage and processing (scalable relational databases, Hadoop, Spark, etc.), extracting structured data from unstructured data, systems issues (exploiting multicore, security), analytics (machine learning, data compression, efficient algorithms), visualization, and a range of applications. (Cost: $490.50 with Discount Code: MITX10)
  • Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python (Starts June 10, 2015): This course is the first of a two-course sequence: Introduction to Computer Science and Programming Using Python, and Introduction to Computational Thinking and Data Science. Together, they are designed to help people with no prior exposure to computer science or programming learn to think computationally and write programs to tackle useful problems. (Cost: Free)
