Exploring Big Data with the Microsoft Professional Program (MPP)
After the introduction of a very successful online education curriculum focusing on Data Science, Microsoft recently announced its next Microsoft Professional Program (MPP) in Big Data. I absolutely loved the Data Science program and have decided to start on the Big Data courses this week. During this blog series, I will be writing up my notes on each course I complete, why I selected it, how much time I spent, the aspects that I enjoyed the most, and any tips/suggestions for getting through the course successfully to move on through completion of the program.
Several of the courses offer multiple options, so your courses may vary slightly from the topics I selected. Here are the reviews for each of the courses I completed.
Course #1 - Microsoft Professional Orientation: Big Data
Course #2 - Analyzing and Visualizing Data with Power BI
Course #3 - Introduction to NoSQL Data Solutions
Course #4 - Querying Data with Transact-SQL
Course #5 - Delivering a Data Warehouse in the Cloud
Course #8 - Orchestrating Big Data with Azure Data Factory
Course #10 - Microsoft Professional Capstone: Big Data
If you are going through the Big Data MPP program, please leave a comment and share your experience. It’s a lot of fun to discuss these courses with others who are going through them.
