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....

This course was great! I enjoyed parsing different types of data: from documents and the web. This course is definitely (rudimentary) a must take course for anyone who wants to go into data science.

Peer grading is not the best idea for this type of exercise. Also Google API

This is a very good course, but probably more SQL will make it even better.

一门很好的介绍 PYHTON 的课, 缺点就是作业过于简单。 我期待的最后一个作业居然不需要半行代码。  增加点难度是可以增加学习动力的。

Wish the exercises could've been a bit more tough/ real-life.
