  • I liked this course. Perhaps I should write "I loved this course". Dr. Chuck is a good instructor and it seem very easy to understand "what is Python?", even "how computers are processing?". I learned a lot and now, I can move on the next chapter "Data Structure with Python". The reason I'm learning Python is for Data Science, I want to do things in Data analytic and BI (Business Intelligence). So good luck, you, newbie, you'll love it and I think it is right place to start with computer programming.

    Excellent introduction to basic Python code, with a focus on parsing strings and data structures, connecting with data sources, and database basics. This five-course program was my first Python MOOC. The other, also taken on the Coursera.org platform,...

    The best part of this course was that it assumes that the viewers know nothing about Python unlike most of the other courses I have seen where it is assumes that the learner is familiar with at least one computer language. The Professor breaks down every concept and makes every lesson even clearer by including comprehensible diagrams. All in all, i would recommend this course to those who are starting with Python and also those who need to revise the basics before proceeding to something slightly more advanced.

    This is a wonderful course. It really gave the understanding to finally take a step towards learning python to an advanced level. Dr. Chuks expressions and explanations were engaging, made it simple t understand. I am very sure the advanced part of this specialization would be easy to grab as the foundation which he has done a good job in for learners like me.

    This is one of the best if not the best course on introduction to python programming. The professor's way of explaining is amusing and lot of fun. I took this course on coursera but you can also take this course through website and it's completely fee. High quality education and that too for free. Nothing can better than this.

    Great course for starting with Python. The teacher is really great, explains everything, and goes through the material spet by step in a crystal clear manner. He is also quite funny with some references and jokes.

    It should be a very nice course which can lead a junior learner to Python world! I have learnt a lot about deep rules of Python Programming, instead of just writing some code, that should be the most important for me.

    Great course for both the begginers and people who have some experience in programming. I used to code, but forgot a lot of things and this course was excellent even though I have some basics in programming.

    I didn't have any background in programming and I had taught it's going to be much tough but this course was good, I learnt a lot. although I'm still a bit confused, I enjoyed it.

    In my opinion, the python is good enough. All the lectures are well organised . Absolutely fantastic place to study. Lovely friendly staff that are always on hand to help if you have any problems. Staff are more than qualified to teach lessons.

    This is the second course in the Python for Everybody specialization.
    It helps me a lot, this course lays a very good foundation to Python basic.

    Dr. Chunk explains very good.
  • Excellent course for the Python enthusiasts
    This specialization gives you the confidence to work on any Python program with ease. Before this, I have some experience with Python but I am not confident enough to develop any script on my own. After going through the courses, working on Assignments and Projects I gained a lot of confidence to build Python modules on my own from scratch. The course structure is well organized, Concepts are properly explained, Assignments are designed in a way to properly test your understanding of the concepts learned.
