  • 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.
  • Course is well-structured for a beginner to programming. Personally, I breezed through the course as I've had some prior experience programming, but it did introduce me to some important Python concepts, like its data structures.

    Verdict: excellent for beginners to programming, pace might be slow for those already familiar with programming.

    This course helped me to refresh my skills in programming, it is very easy to use and the teacher explained it well. Thanks a lot for Michigan University for having this course. Looking forward to do more coding thru Python

    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.

    un curso excelente, para 2022 faltaria unas actualizaciones .
    pero de lo contrario esta facinante la forma que transmite el profesor y ademas una facilidad para podernos adaptar a su enseñanza en realidad estoy facinado.
  • 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.

    I love the classes !
    They are faraway from boring !
    I´ve never programmed before but it´s amazing when we accomplish do an assignment.

    First, I want to thank all those in charge of this wonderful and useful course. In fact, this course has helped me a lot. It is very useful, especially for beginners, because it provides an excellent approach to understanding programming and its concepts. The explanation was clear and understandable, and the course provides books and references for you to study the lessons explained by the doctor. The course is beautiful and full of useful information, thank you all.

    To be honest, when I was in secondary school I never had an interest in programming. But when I saw this course being offered I figured not only would I be learning a skill set but I would be finding something to pass the time. I must say programming...
