Comment / Feedback
This is a great resource that I love to use, it was very popular with my study participants and it's the one go-to resource I recommend to everyone (friends, family, my hairdresser, young and old,...) who asks me what's wrong with giving away their data online. Unfortunately it's getting a bit outdated but I would still recommend this as a great introduction into big data.
