re: How One University Puts Big Data Into Curriculum
Awesome, truly awesome, and thank you Tableau. I think that currently there are not too many classes that are available that deal with big data analytics at all. I have heard rumors about in the next semester or 2 that the University I attend will have them on the schedule. There are literally no classes that I could take or that are even close to the topic, and that is disappointing. Especially if that topic is extremely important in the IT world and seems like it will be around for quite some time and create a whole new slue of jobs. So I always love reading when these issues are though have and addressed as well as preparing future IT professional with a viable and marketable skill.
