A great course on everything Big Data taught at ETH Zürich University by Professor Ghislain Fourny. The recorded lectures of fall 2021 are up on Youtube for everyone to enjoy.
The notion behind Big Data that this course adopts is that :
Information society has to turn data into information, information into knowledge, knowledge into value. This has become increasingly complex. Data comes in larger volumes, diverse shapes, from different sources. Data is more heterogeneous and less structured than forty years ago. Nevertheless, it still needs to be processed fast, with support for complex operations.
The course revolves around the database technologies and the most important database design principles that lay the foundations of the Big Data universe. These are distributed storage, the syntax, models, validation, processing, indexing, and querying, all fitted to the Big Data model. Looking more into them we find that they are expanded into :
Subsequently, those subjects are spread out in a 40 recorded lectures, each video up to 45 minutes in length :
All the videos are very interesting but I particularly liked the series on "Wide column stores".
There also "Big Data for Engineers" being taught which is similar to Big Data, but it's adapted for non Computer Scientists. Big Data is addressed purely to Computer Science students.
In the end watching through should have gained you an overview and understanding of the Big Data landscape.Armed with this knowledge you should be able to make informed decisions addressing any of your projects' needs.
