I have started learning 3 months ago and I really gained much info and practical experience. I completed the “Big Data with Spark” course and the learning journey really exceeded my expectations.

The course structure and topics were great, well organized and comprehensive, even the basics of Linux were covered in a very simple way. There were always exercises and hands-on that build better understanding, also the lab environment and provided online tools were great help and let you practice everything without having to install anything on your PC except the web browser.

In addition, for the live sessions, it was really a joy attending them each weekend, our instructor “Sandeep Giri”, besides his great experience and knowledge, he was generous, helpful and patient answering all attendees questions in such a way that he could go for more examples and hands-on or even searching the documentation and try new things, I gained much from other attendees’ questions and the way Sandeep responded to them.

This was a great experience having this course and I’m going for more courses in Big Data and Machine Learning with CloudxLab and I recommend it for all my friends and colleagues who look for better learning.

...

Must have for practicing and perfecting hadoop. To setup in PC you need to have a very high end configuration and setup will be pseudo node setup.. For better understanding I recomend CloudxLab

...

This course is suitable for everyone. Me being a product manager had not done hands-on coding since quite some time. Python was completely new to me. However, Sandeep Giri gave us a crash course to Python and then introduced us to Machine Learning. Also, the CloudxLab’s environment was very useful to just log in and start practising coding and playing with things learnt. A good mix of theory and practical exercises and specifically the sequence of starting straight away with a project and then going deeper was a very good way of teaching. I would recommend this course to all.

...

They are great. They take care of all the Big Data technologies (Hadoop, Spark, Hive, etc.) so you do not have to worry about installing and running them correclty on your pc. Plus, they have a fantastic customer support. Even when I have had problems debugging my own programs, they have answered me with the correct solution in a few hours, and all of this for a more than reasonable price. I personally recommend it to everyone :)

...

Machine learning courses in especially the Artificial Intelligence for the manager course is excellent in CloudxLab. I have attended some of the course and able to understand as Sandeep Giri sir has taught AI course from scratch and related to our data to day life…

He even takes free sessions to helps students and provides career guidance.

His courses are worthy and even just by watching YouTube video anyone can easily crack the AI interview.
