The course is great... You can definitely learn many things... Was kind of hard for me and i went many times back and forth through most of the lectures... However i think i learn many new things....

I happily give 5 stars for this course. In a few words, I appreciated Dr. Chuck's style of teaching being emphatic when needed. The pace of the lessons was good and I could finish the course in a reasonable time, managing to acknowledge all the concepts. Thanks for the teaching, Coursera and UMich team!

I knew python to some extent before this course. Now i have learned so much and even started writing small command line applications and web scrapers on my own. This course is just a great way for me to get started on databases too. This will be help me write really useful command line applications. Thanks to coursera for bringing this wonderful specialization into my life.

Dr Chuck is an excellent teacher. His examples are clear, his methods are exemplary, his style is engaging.
This course was listed as Beginner Level and it certainly met that expectation.
Now, if he would only teach an Intermediate course on SQL and Python with more challenging examples, then I'd sign up right now!

This was another superb course!! However I'd still suggest the following to make it even more complete:
1) Please also show how to connect/operate with other DBMS like Oracle, MySQL using Python (at least briefly).
2) Please delve a little deeper into OOP topics in Python, it looked a bit cut-short.

Once again, Dr. Chuck Severance delivers!
Two weeks ago, I knew nothing about JSON, databases and APIs. Now I'm working on an independent project and using the knowledge in this class to connect to databases with APIs, decode the information using a JSON library within python, and process the data to solve real world problems.
The free online book is a great start to each week of learning. If you first study the book and practice with the sample code in each chapter with your Atom program, you will do well. The lecture videos are solid and helpful, reinforcing the book material. The assignments are fair and sometimes a little too easy but for this 5 course beginner sequence, overall I believe they're right on the money. A huge thanks to Dr. Chuck and everyone involved in putting this course (and all 5 in this sequence) together! I'm looking forward to the capstone (5th course) in a few days.
