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.
I found this course a little bit easier that some of the previous courses, however, it allowed me to gain experience managing a larger projects that encompass several languages and multiple programs.

This was a shocker - spoon-fed course with zero intellectual challenge. I paid for it but value it at zero. Previously I had thought it OK for learning Python, but the capstone had zero value, and no need to write a single line of code. Pretty annoyed is my summary, a waste of time.
par Tamaz L•
The only thing I had to do in this course regarding the required assignments was to change python 2.7 code to 3.4 as that's what I'm using.
Presentations didn't add much towards the learning either. Definite downgrade from previous courses, especially from the first three.
par Jasper R•
Personally, I think I learned relatively little compared to the other courses. It was nice to see a bigger project which combines everything we have learned. But i preferred the other way of learning. Furthermore the whole specialization was very learnful!
par Gavrilo L•
I think this is the worst course in the series, the code explanations are not as good as previous courses and also I wish there was a bit more guidance with what you want to do and structure for people that do NOT want to do a random project.

I would suggest coursera to somewhat lower the difficulty of the captone cause right away dealing with page rank and gmane was very difficult for me atleast. There should have been more smaller comparitively less difficult more projects.
par Nicholas W•
This course is more useful if you already have some ideas in mind about how and what data you'll want to visualize. If you don't have that in mind you'll just be handed the whole course on a silver platter and not really learn much.
par Matt W•
There was not the same application of programming skills as in the previous courses. Also, this course started too late after the other courses and I lost a lot of momentum in completing coursework.
In general, good support from teaching staff. All you need to pass is just executing the sample python program and submitting screenshots of it which is too basic and doesn't teach you anything.
par Thomas Y•
Not exactly a challenge or me applying anything I've learnt. I literally only ran the code that I was given and I recieved this certificate. There's really no need to even watch the videos.

Access to the required course work won't be open for me, for 6 weeks from now. The system just want you to pay at least another month's subscription;
also, not much new information was taught.
par Kuznetsov S A•
There is no real assignment (with code writing) that will be graded. There is only already given code and recommendations what you can do by yourself. Too easy course I think.
par Paul D•
The materials are great and the professor seems pleasant. Unfortunately the evaluation of the lecturers is not always fair. Otherwise there is nothing to complain about
par Ioannis S•
The course offers just a simple running of (interesting and useful) code, but doesn't put the student in the situation of thinking and creating ideas and code.
par sanil f•
This is less of a capstone and more of a code walkthrough.. All other courses in this specialization were great but this one course is not designed properly.
par Gilad W•
The videos are not clear. There is no introduction of what we are doing, the code review skips too fast on the code makes it unclear
par Mihir A•
BIg eh. I never really did anything in this course except for a final exam and everything else was optional. Pretty bland really
par Mehregan K•
U will be learning almost nothing. If you wanna buy new subscription for this course, just dont. Only worth it if free.
par Ibrahim S E•
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.
