This course will walk you through a hands-on project suitable for a portfolio. You will be introduced to third-party APIs and will be shown how to manipulate images using the Python imaging library (pillow), how to apply optical character recognition to images to recognize text (tesseract and py-tesseract), and how to identify faces in images using the popular opencv library. By the end of the course you will have worked with three different libraries available for Python 3 to create a real-world data-analysis project.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PYTHON PROJECT: PILLOW, TESSERACT, AND OPENCV
Very interesting course on implementing the use of open source software. A bit challenging but still very doable.
i would have rated it 5 star if not for very poor submission system.
this course is very challenging and if you are not up for challenges think twice before enrolling.
This is my last course for the specialization and the whole specialization is great .It helps me to build my basics . Than you:)
The final project should have enabled .html or .pdf submission. And the response time of the server is pretty slow.
About the Python 3 Programming Specialization
This specialization teaches the fundamentals of programming in Python 3. We will begin at the beginning, with variables, conditionals, and loops, and get to some intermediate material like keyword parameters, list comprehensions, lambda expressions, and class inheritance.
