Week 5 round up

Study week

Week 5 was a study break, and on Thursday we hosted a live Twitter chat.

You asked questions on a number of topics, such as where more data for analysis can be found, which tools are best for analysing big data, and whether there will be a sequel to the Big Data MOOC.

We let you know that we’ll be providing links to more datasets at the end of the course, and as for a sequel to the MOOC – well, we’ll think about it!

We had great fun talking to you all. You can read the full transcript of the chat here. Tarcízio Silva also made a very interesting visualisation of users tweeting on the #FLbigdata hashtag following the chat, which we’ve linked below – thanks Tarcízio!
