Everything you need to start practising, let's see how the rest of the course turns out to help. A little later we face very useful processes, like merging, dedublication, fuzzy matching to correct typing errors etc. tbh. suprisingly useful course aside of violating best practises in attribute namings (Attributenames containing spaces or are named in a way which some SQL systems interpret as commands) a really good course.

Course materials can be improved with more information in the PDF. Also I faced issues while copy pasting queries from PDF. Please add a separate notepad for SQL queries.

This course is simply speechless! It covers a wide range of topics in very detailed explanations, and by just watching one time per video, I can understand the concepts and apply them to practical problems! I highly recommend this video to anyone who wants to be an expert.

Instruction are very clean. I was able to learn basic to more advanced content. I would like to request to include Pentaho full course including the dashboard and reporting. Thank you very much for the given knowledge. I don't rate 5 star because of lacking part of reporting and dashboards.

So far the course is exciting as I am under the impression that I can successfully complete this course.

As someone that works with PDI regularly, I still learned something new with this course. The only reason why this is not a full 5 stars was because I could not get the email function to work, no matter what I did. I hope it is possible to get those emails to inform of a failed job or fallout file created. My colleagues would love it, too.

Es un tema de mucho interés personal y me parece muy bueno, además no es la primera vez que sigo un curso de UDEMY. Y el material y los contenidos son muy detallados
May 13, 2022
Use very powerful tool to express basic process of ETL and make people know very simple basic idea of data engineer work.
May 5, 2022
The dowload instructions for software isnot clear, so people cannot get hands on, We will become silent spettors, please update the course. So people can make use of the course. I request udemy tem to please take look on the comments. So things are modified accordingly

A very nice introductory course! It teaches basic content and also some more advanced content. I would enjoy seeing an intermediate to advanced course with real world cases and maybe a project, who knows, maybe you could think about creating a new course for those who completed this one.
May 2, 2022
many basic information important to people which start this path, but I need more information about how to load data parallel and good practice to build good transformation, course is very monotonous
April 30, 2022
The course provided a really good overview and the instructor was very clear on their explanations and methods. I had however, hoped for more complex jobs, perhaps something around Unit Testing. In addition, I do not think there were enough questions or practical's to test my knowledge.
April 21, 2022
Buen contenido, pero me hubiese gustado profundizar más en parametrización de jobs, tareas de scripting más desafiantes, entre otros. El instructor habla perfectamente y se entiende absolutamente todo, a pesar de tener fuerte acento de la India. Buscaré otros cursos de Start-Tech Academy, lo recomiendo!

De opbouw van deze cursus over een ETL-tool is goed doordacht en de lesstof wordt telkens duidelijk uitgelegd. Gericht op niet-ruimtelijke data.
April 17, 2022
A person who desires to begin with the petaho or who desires to revised his/her understanding, this direction will let you with the proper content. Do practise while looking the videos and after 10 hours you'll be exact to head on your little complicated transformation and practise will make you capable of construct complicated transformation/jobs.
