+ The goal of these live lessons is to touch on the various aspects of big data at a high level. For instance, instead of going into
+ detail on the many nuances of Hadoop, we'll just get it set up and use it in conjunction with other tools like Cassandra. Further,
+ we'll go into the algorithms for processing and close out with tools for visualization. We'll be going through the full-stack instead of
+ deep on a specific area.
