About the Course

This course will introduce students to the basics of the Structured Query Language (SQL) as well as basic database design for storing data as part of a multi-step data gathering, analysis, and processing effort. The course will use SQLite3 as its database. We will also build web crawlers and multi-step data gathering and visualization processes. We will use the D3.js library to do basic data visualization. This course will cover Chapters 14-15 of the book “Python for Everybody”. To succeed in this course, you should be familiar with the material covered in Chapters 1-13 of the textbook and the first three courses in this specialization. This course covers Python 3....

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....

Not in details and code was copy and paste, although I discovered a new field of technology with Python.

This course is not good as other course in the specialization. It should have more information/details.

Overall, It was a great course. If the final assignment was made much clearer it would have been great.

Good lectures. But assignments are too easy (only modifying the given code, but not writing your own)

SQL, SQLite. However the contents could be more detailed. Less Python and more SQL/JavaScript/HTML...

The last assignment was a bit of a cop out. Looking forward to the capstone.

Perfect for the beginner.

It's good course to play with XML, JSON, SQL, SQLite, Google API, Twitter API etc. using python.

The google API changes made one of the exams unclear. This would be something worth clarifying.
