Welcome to the Capstone Project for Big Data! In this culminating project, you will build a big data ecosystem using tools and methods form the earlier courses in this specialization. You will analyze a data set simulating big data generated from a large number of users who are playing our imaginary game "Catch the Pink Flamingo". During the five week Capstone Project, you will walk through the typical big data science steps for acquiring, exploring, preparing, analyzing, and reporting. In the first two weeks, we will introduce you to the data set and guide you through some exploratory analysis using tools such as Splunk and Open Office. Then we will move into more challenging big data problems requiring the more advanced tools you have learned including KNIME, Spark's MLLib and Gephi. Finally, during the fifth and final week, we will show you how to bring it all together to create engaging and compelling reports and slide presentations. As a result of our collaboration with Splunk, a software company focus on analyzing machine-generated big data, learners with the top projects will be eligible to present to Splunk and meet Splunk recruiters and engineering leadership.

TOP REVIEWS FROM BIG DATA - CAPSTONE PROJECT
The project is really helpful to sum up the whole process of the 5 previous courses, but there is a bit problem with the week 4 assignment.
Good exercise to cover the whole essence of many weeks of other courses of the Big Data Specialization.
waoh.. it's incredible.. .. I strongly recommend this Capstone Project. Be sure to put on frank effort.
