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....

Wonderful course! I learnt many useful SQL statements and know how to combine database operations into python program. Dr. Chuck's lectures are always comprehensible and clear. Thank you, professor.

It's OK. the lectures are good. The book needs updating, and more exercises would be helpful to practice what we learned in class.

The class is very interesting but too many topics are covered. It would have preferred more self coding, rather than small edits

Assignments are very easy, and there aren't easy to follow notes that one can use instead of always having to watch the videos.

Good Course But teaching the vast topics quickly and in summarized way.

needed more explanation and deeping on several topics

not too many new things about Python. mostly introduction to Python capabilities in databases/

overall pretty good class.

Focused too much on SQL rather than Python, so not really that helpful for people who already know SQL (like myself)

The only thing learned during this course was how to use SQL in python...The rest of lectures are just fillers

Database code is just a walkthrough. It should have been more details... Its hard to understand the code :(

Nice course but didn't include enough python code for other database vendors and wasn't challenging enough

Very short lectures and easy assignments, but a good overview and starting point for further studies.

I do not find this course is useful to learn seems it only gives a guideline to the python database.

Week 5 was not well explained and structured. Few things were confusing concepts were missing.

It seemed to me a little bit too superficial... It was almost only copying and pasting code...

The exercises need more work done if the students are expected to actually learn this stuff.

Very interesting but a lot of the code is unexplained and assumes we will understand it.

I think it would be good to include into course following topics:

1) NoSQL databases

2) ORMs

Intro class as most time we are only required to make small adjustments to sample code

There is too little amount of exercises/assignments required as part of the course....

Things are way to deep for not programmers, i did not enjoyed so much as the previous

Very good, but rather brief. It does teach you the basics, but uses Python 2, not 3.

The course material was very good but the assignments were boring and unchallenging

Assignment level not up to the mark. way too easy and obvious problems were there.

I think it can further explore the libraries and constructs of the algorithms.

Not so much hands-on work in this course.

Give us more homework please! ;-)
