About the Course

This course will continue the introduction to Python programming that started with Python Programming Essentials. We'll learn about different data representations, including strings, lists, and tuples, that form the core of all Python programs. We will also teach you how to access files, which will allow you to store and retrieve data within your programs. These concepts and skills will help you to manipulate data and write more complex Python programs. By the end of the course, you will be able to write Python programs that can manipulate data stored in files. This will extend your Python programming expertise, enabling you to write a wide range of scripts using Python This course uses Python 3. While most Python programs continue to use Python 2, Python 3 is the future of the Python programming language. This course introduces basic desktop Python development environments, allowing you to run Python programs directly on your computer. This choice enables a smooth transition from online development environments....

Exceptional course, well guided with very good examples and very accurate tips for how to code. This course is a bit challenging but when you finish it. You feel so realized, don't be afraid to try.

The fourth week relies more heavily on the local computing machine instead of using online codesculptor, and thus I would definitely love to see more demonstration on that. The explanation on list and tuple, character and others are thorough and clear. In overall, this is a good quality course.

Notice that If you are considering taking this course, the first course "Python Programming Essential" is almost a must-have unless you have had any prior Python coding experience

The final project is too difficult while the course lecture content is less than what the final project needs. So I hope I can get more instruction on the final project as I am a fully beginner, like providing some solutions or coding steps, which will help me understand python programming better.

The practice project for week three I didn't like, but the content covered in this course and the excellent teaching basically made up for it. The final project on week four really made me think and required a lot of time out of me, but tests a very useful application of coding!

I got to know a lot about python scripting. This course clearly describes all the details and the explanations are very clear. However, it would be great if more examples with solutions are provided in order to understand concepts more clearly.

This was one of the most informative and beneficial course about Python Data Representations and has surely helped me a lot in understanding and learning about the various data types used in python.

well the instructors were as always awesome, but i have always felt that what i am taught and what i give for a project are quite different, i just feel so

The project descriptions should be explained in more and in an efficient manner as lot of statement were confusing and was not understood

You can increase the duration of course and difficulty level by taking any python real time software project

Good material. It will be nice if we could check the final project solutions somewhere.
