The syllabus of the course takes you in a roller-coaster ride.

From basic level to advance level and you won't feel any trouble nor hesitate a bit.

It's easy, it's vast, and it's really usefull.

it becomes easier wand clearer when one gets to complete the assignments as to how to utilize what has been learned. Practical work is a great way to learn, which was a fundamental part of the course.

Pretty nice course, very elementary though. Only follow if you're a real beginner, with no knowledge of programming.

Muy Bueno, La parte de Python enseña mucho, se deberia potenciar el Web scraping, creo que fue demasiado básico

The final project was a bit disappointing, it was too easy and didn't cover much of the material of the course.

Everything is IBM Watson. Please reduce IBM product recommendation and let us learn concepts to apply anywhere.

Not a bad course. Not real intense. Sometimes instructions are hard to follow but good for a casual learner.

Nice course oscillating between theory and practice.

Maybe NumPy could have been more detailed with exercises.

Even if I am not fluent in Python after this course, it was one of the most efficient training I did so far.
