Now I understand how data mining, API's and dumping and retrieving data from a database works. Excellent course to start understanding how python can be used to work with data sources on the internet.
Python for everyone is One of the Best Course on MOOC platform .\n\nDr. Chuck made it interesting and Knowledgeable. Way back 3 Months ,I can't even thing of the stuff that I leaned and implemented .

Very lame exercises, requires no coding at all, just running some pre-written code, expected more of a capstone course.
par Kumar N S•
Not the quality i expected. The capstone project should have been little more challenging and something new.
par Huang M•
I was hoping that the final project could be written by myself...... but it is way too difficult
par Francisco D F A•
No new learning during this course. Working on the capstone project is practically optional.
par Robert S•
Was disappointed that the capstone did not require any coding on the part of the student
par Daisuke H•
Very few amount of exercise and very small gain of knowledge from Capstone.
par Jeffrey S•
Didn't actually have to write any code, so didn't really learn a lot new
par Lei L•
It costs a quite long time to wait for being grading by a staff.
par Koen V•
Much less interesting than the other 4 previous python courses
par Stephane T•
It could be a bit more challenging than just running scripts.
par John J•
I expected more practical exercises. but I did learn some
par Marco C•
basically it's a course on "how to make a screenshot..."
par ARUN M•
not explain every things in code and use of library
par José A G R•
i expected plots of graphs-networks with d3.js
par Jiby N•
Sorry folks but we are not learning much here
par Kannan S•
The assignments were not challenging enough.
par Axel O P N•
Not really learning a lot of new content
par cheting c•
way to hard to comprehand the code

I liked Dr Chuck's lecture very much. But Capstone instructors and the submission process can be improved. When I submit assignment, the instructor did not read SQL statement (I selected data from database only 100 rows). Instructor commented why the data is only 100 rows and subsequent process produced more data. It's because SQL statement says limit 100 rows. Assignment was to show if the table has data. and I correctly took screenshot and posted. Even though all the data was there and entire process was correct. To check if the data is in the database table, you select some of them with setting limit, you don't always query entire table. It's good practice. Not only that, my assignment was not returned to me for long time. There was no way for me to know I didn't get grade. Then you need to submit discussion to forum to reset my assignment submission. That process is unnecessary. If instructor does not grade, the assignment should be reset at that point.

I have to give Capstone a bad grade for the following reasons: 1. The assignments on this module do not add anything to your formation. They are mostly "download this code and run it" But beside that, they offer a "Honours certificate" if you complete two of those silly assignments but beware: the instructor will give you zero marks if you slighlty deviate from the instuctions (in my case I downloaded more records in one script than in the other), it will take days for they to mark it and if your subscribtion ends before getting feedback, you will have to pay for another month to be able to resubmit. Nonsense!

My main problem with this course is that the first four courses are in Python 2 and then for this one it was switch to Python 3. Another problem is that I didn't learn anything. The assignments were to run the programs the professor wrote and show that you ran them. This class needs to be redone to actually have the students show that they know how to program in Python 2. I only completed this so I could have the specialization.
It is not fair that you are able to enroll a specailization where you are supposed to work at your pace, but then the last course has specific opening dates, so you can not end the specialization at the date you predicted at the beginning because this last course is still closed.
You are paying for the specialization and you pay proportionally for the time you spend completing it.
par Alexander A•
With everything being optional it barely feels worth the course. Unlike the earlier courses, there was no real lectures showing new techniques and abilities, and programs were not designed from the ground up.
