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....

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

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

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