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....

Great course but personally I think it will better if Pandas is taught instead of SQL, especially for a beginners course.

Great course with LOTS of info. I only wish some of the techniques seen in more complex code was talked about a bit more.

I like this course, but not as good as the previous three. I think it did not present the database models very clearly.

An enjoyable presentation of this topic. Gives a decent overview without going into depth. Charles is a great teacher.

Very neat course. I really recommend it for these who start with Python,

or just want to remind themselves such topics.

Peer graded assingments take a lot of time because you need to be graded by three others and a instructure from UM.

There should be more exercises and business problems to implement SQL on. Anyways a nice course for SQL beginners.

Its good, as the other course, but the extension of the topics, maybe need to make another specialization for it.

This course is a beginner's guide to Databases, and the concept of using it with Python is taught with clarity.

Great information but the homework is a little to easy and I don't think I was able to comprehend it that well.

I wish there were more examples from earlier chapters to help build on the foundation for the later chapters.

Topics covered are great, but there is a lack of assignments to be done by students completely on themselves.

Id suggest for week 4 and 5 to have more difficult exams. I loved the course nevertheless. Thanks Dr. Chuck!

Not as good as the first three but still very good. Do the first three if you haven't already done them.

Assignments were too easy to pass. So it was not enough to practice of DB. But lectures were still good.

The 4th course, in my opinion, mainly involves general stuff. It's not as specific as the last three cou

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