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....

Needs more actual programming. I wouldn't mind if the problems were more difficult

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。
