This course was really interesting and did a good job introducing complicated topics in usefully simplified form. It was a pleasure to listen to the instructor and I got everything I wanted out of it.
Getting a bit more challenging than the earlier courses in the specialization. The exercises require more struggle, but all the information is there. Another step along the way. Thank you, Dr. Chuck!

Dr Chuck makes the programming very easy. This is the first programming language I have ever learnt, and I never thought coding is fun. Thanks to Chuck for making this course simple and easy for learners.

This course is challenging, but in a good way - I had fun doing a number of the assignments, even when I had to dig a bit to figure it out. Dr. Chuck provides plenty of information and is easy to follow!

Nice introductory class for accessing web data. The course covers different web data formats and the ways to retrieve and parse the information using Python. The content is easy to understand and helpful!

Really another great course. The greatest of all instructors. Good homework. I liked it. Best, the links to all data samples available on the planet, a whole new world opened yesterday. Thank you so much.

Great course, I learned a lot. I recommend it to everyone regardless of interest as it provides a good understanding of how the internet works (and you probably use the internet if you are reading this!)

I like these courses very much. Dr Severance is such a good teacher!
But I found the last courses more difficult and maybe I need more time to digest all the elements and certainly need to practice more.

Thank you so much for teaching me like this, I think this is great experience to connect with outside world through internet with our amazing instructor Dr. chuck. I am very glad to being part of this !!

so fun to learn this.at first it took me time to understand later by repeating i could the assignments with clear knowledge.thank you dr.chuk for sharing your experience and learning python as alphabets.

Well, it's an exceptional course if you want to gain some in depth knowledge about how data is being exchanged through internet and how data is retrieved, filtered from xml and json files across the web.
By Uria Y•
Great course for anyone interested in writing basic Python programs to fetch data from the web and manipulate it. Teaches some XML, some JSON and some basic HTML. Had fun, and Dr. Chuck is geeky-awesome.
By MARK H•
This wasn't an easy course. It probably took me longer than needed but I wrote each assignment without copying as that is the only way I learn. Thank you for putting together a rather difficult course.

This is an excellent introduction to Python´s web data handling. Very written as expect from this specialization. Thank you very much Dr Chuck and University of Michigan for this great Coursera´s course.
By David H•
This course teaches basic knowledge about how python accesses web data. Simple but really worth learning. In addition, Dr. Severance's lectures are very clear to understand. Overall, it's a great course.

Great course. My third course on Coursera and with Dr. Chuck. It was fun. There were a couple of issues initially since I was using python 3 instead of 2.x, but it didn't take too long to get used to it.

This course is very useful for the beginners. What I most like about the course is it comes with lot of sample codes for practice. The notes are amzing. So it serves it's purpose beyond the expectation.

Basic course recommendation for everyone who is having keen interest on web scraping data and web crawling using JSON and XML data files. And also about the regular expressions and Networking in python.

Este curso expandiu meus horizontes acerca da funcionalidade da ferramenta. Aplicações diretas que demonstram o poder da programação, mesmo de maneira básica. Parabéns ao professor pelo excelente curso.

First of all, it was more difficult than I expected, but it worth it. In the end, you will learn some cool stuff, such as how to drag data from the web and how to use them with the help of JSON and XML.

Its a good course the instructor is awesome .But i think in the last week 'week 6' APIs does not explained well ..... i search about it and understand it very well.In general the course is very good ^_^

Another great course in the series. I'm headed to a local Python workshop next weekend, and feeling like I'll hold my own on the projects there because of these courses. Looking forward to the 4th one!
By Huijun Z•
I really learnt a lot from taking this course! thank you Dr Chuck! Very clear explanation and I would recommend this course to anyone who has a bit of python experience and interested in data analytics.
By Karl D•
This is a great course. I highly recommand that. The complexity is incleasing since the Getting started but this also increases the motivation to go further doing interesting stuffs of the real world.
By R M•
Along side Python programming knowledge, I also learned something new about API/JSON/XML. One may argue they are part of Python, but still good to have a sense of those terms I often encounter at work.
By Abhilash A•
This course is just awesome. Mr. Severance delivers a great experience of learning as he does always. The course helps in coping up with API and a basic orientation about using python to load web data.
By Alain G•
Fairly challenging course with useful learning about how to access web data with Python using the different formats of data (XML/JSON). Enjoyed the challenging exercises, made me learn through thinking
