This was a really excellent course. The functional project at the end helped me understand how recommendation systems work and now I'm very excited to try to build a similar system for books I love.
Very interesting and fine course, in this course I learn how to solve Nested data and new a new thing i.e REST API which seems best in course 3 now I am excited about course 4. Thanking you Michigan

Great insight into obtaining data from the internet, however, a few functions could have been explained better for use in the final project. Nevertheless, by the end of the course I feel confident about the use of APIs and nested data structures
i loved this course , i learned many things . but week 3 about APIs it was strange to me , there's no enough exercises to solve or problems just final project , maybe because i don't know enough knowledge APIs
but anyway this course is awesome
There is some problems with the caching in the Final Project. I have to use https://fopp.umsi.education/runestone/assignments/doAssignment?assignment_id=24 instead https://fopp.umsi.education/assignments/doAssignment?assignment_id=24

the course is excellent .. but my personal point of views is that is should have some more wide variety of question so that students can practice more question and more varieties of question .. but at the end the coerces is excellent
par Ahana D•
it is an amazing course with hands on practice assignments. professor teaches in a very interesting and understandable way and makes things fun.
the objectives of this course were made very clear and were completely met at the end.
par John M•
Great course. Last question was challenging. I couldn't recall that there was a little tidbit in the tie breaking sort video/reading from the last course. Eventually I saw that and it clicked but I totally forgot about it.
par Kefei W•
The course material is OK. The instruction for API session is bit rushed, but I learned a lot more than I expected after spending more time than I expected by repeatedly troubleshooting the coding in the final project.
par Anastasios P•
A huge improvement from the two previous courses of the specialisation. Lecture time is more normalised, assessments not always the same or solved in the preceding video and more challenging graded assessments.
par Mahmoud G•
All in all, I really liked the course . I feel like the part about the caching and the module that was provided could be done better than that so student themselves could get involved with making that module.
par Deepa M•
Final assignment is not working as expected , there is some bug in runestone interactive page and therefore there is an invalid error being thrown and I am unable to finish this module because of this bug
par erik w•
Very good course until the final project. There are a lot of bugs that caused me and what seems like a lot of other students to have to spend a great deal of time on it. This time wasn't productive.
par Joel C•
This course seemed a bit rushed and less well organized than the prior two.
I would have appreciated more practice especially with RESTful data collection before jumping into the final project
par Juan C A•
Excellent understunding of programming. Advanced concepts such list comprenhension, map and zip make me review my way of thinking, producing better and shorten coding.
Thxs to the Instructors.
par PORBENI, E D•
Good course like the others in the specialization! I found the end of course project unnecessary difficult because there were some subtle errors from the assessment questions and grader.
par Jason S•
I thought the material was presented okay. The exercise examples are now out of date and should be sourced elsewhere (tastedive is going away and OMDB now requires an API Key).
par Tomas C•
Good way to learn more about the usefulness of Python. A little bit more difficult than the previous Python 3 Programming Courses. Great lecturer!
par Shobha D•
It was difficult to complete all questions of the final project because the information brought back was often different than what was expected.
par James U•
more work required on presentation of the material and practice sessions to better establish the foundation principles and methods of API tools.
par PierLuigi B•
Very nice done but a lot of problems to handle the timing of the graded assestment tool, I had to put 40000ms in order to make working my code
par Yam H L L•
This particular course is very challenging. I found there were some issue with the assessment grading. Despite all this, is a good course.
par 郡哲 李•
I think overall the course is well structured, but the final project's provided cache problems caused extra but not really needed efforts
par Olga K•
Too theoretical. Needs more practice in between the topics. It was difficult to pass the final exam for a newbie in programming.
par Maria E N•
The course was very good, well organised and with interesting assignments. Some of the material was quite confusing though.
par Manjistha D•
The final project was quite hard and time consuming ... but it was fun to handle difficult problem....Love this course.....
par Alexandra B•
The contents of course is great, but I wish we had more assignments to practice, like in other courses of specialization.
