About the Course

This course will show how one can treat the Internet as a source of data. We will scrape, parse, and read web data as well as access data using web APIs. We will work with HTML, XML, and JSON data formats in Python. This course will cover Chapters 11-13 of the textbook “Python for Everybody”. To succeed in this course, you should be familiar with the material covered in Chapters 1-10 of the textbook and the first two courses in this specialization. These topics include variables and expressions, conditional execution (loops, branching, and try/except), functions, Python data structures (strings, lists, dictionaries, and tuples), and manipulating files. This course covers Python 3....

The material was really nice but the presentation annotating at times was annoying and looked like scribbling

I did not like the part about the API. I believe this can be improved further plus the codes used were old

Explanations given by Professor are awesome, and the interviews in the bonus part add stars to the course.

Lack of practice exercises to build you up for the aassignments detracts from an otherwise decent course.

Very good overall - some of the videos are redundant. Some assignments don't push you to think very much.
