Quite interesting introduction to Python, focusing on the most important components of the language. Looking forward to other courses using the same format. Thank you Bill and team for your hard work.
It was my first experience with Python and I enjoyed it very much! A lot of thanks to Instructor and all team, who made this course so interest and understandable. Thanks to Coursera team as well.
By the end of the course I was picking up on the instructor's style-- it felt less like a course and more like looking over your uncle's shoulder when he worked on the car (or computer). The last week was a big jump from the prior weeks. The instructor uses spyder3 screenshots which are often hard to see.
As per Oxford Dictionary:
concise / adjective
giving a lot of information clearly and in a few words; brief but comprehensive
This course: really brief; not that clear nor well-structured; not nearly comprehensive.
Is it at all possible to be both brief and comprehensive when teaching programming?

C'était mon premier cours en Python et je l'ai trouvé intéressant. J'ai appris un peu l’essentiellement la structure de codage de Python. Si vous avez des compétences en programmation vous acquerriez en peu de temps les bases de Python.
Ce que je regrette c’est le manque de programmation OO.

I feel it was a bit to easy. As long as you followed the lectures and maybe looked at documentation it was straight forward. It really didn't make you think about how/why you were doing what you were doing. Far better beginner courses on here from U of M and Dr. Chuck

Good course to start your career in Python programming. The lectures were easy to understand. Hope to see advanced courses on Python, especially related to Networking, as I'm hoping to use Python for Network automation in future.

Definitely a "concise introduction". I felt like the course was a little too easy and didn't provide much meat to the material. A good start for an inexperienced programmer, but too remedial for experienced programmers.
Although it is a "consice introduction" I would expect to learn about classes and objects in this course.
The assignments are too easy - some of the problems require writing only 1-2 lines of code.

Missing "essential" stuff like networking (sockets, ports, etc.). About loops only for and while were explored. I'm sure there are many more (switch-case, until, unless, etc.). Too basic.
par Ignacio D•
Good essential introduction. However many things are not explained properly, in many instances some functions are shown or required to use without being clearly explained earlier.

3 first weeks had a good mix of exercises, week4 felt like it missed a lot of good opportunities to create exercises based on what was covered in the presentations
I would prefer more compact presentation, less vocal, first syntax , also explanations why spyder environment, python program structures, best part - grading
par Serge T•
Very instructive this lesson. I struggled a little with the videos because of their quality. Nevertheless, great content.
Good starter course that is well explained. Sometimes the problems could be more related to real world examples and challenges.

First two units were taught well and easy to follow. 3rd and 4th unit were not much experimental and unable to follow up.

This courses is very good as it deals with the basic concepts of python. A perfect course to learn python, for beginners.
par Francis G A•
Good quick introduction. Very good. Easy to work through the Exercise Sets. Professor typing on he keyboard quite loud.

auto grader was horrible even doing everything correct it won't show correct ..Wasted lot of time because of autograder
par Tường A•
Thanks for this course.It very goodCan you add more subtitle ? Like VietnameseThank you Mr.Bill
par Nishita D•
Assignment structure and the environment to submit assignments is not user friendly.
par Ellissa V•
Good starter course, a bit too easy if you are already familiar with programming
par SAURABH S•
good for basic ... But too basic we needed some advancement in the course
par Rajesh B•
Decent intro course on Python. It's concise as the title says.
par Manan J•
The course doesn't cover the basic python programming.
par Lindsey P•
Videos became monotonous over time and hard to watch.
par Roger F C•
Basic course. Basic skills. Good examples
