    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 lecturer is quite good and deals a great way to teach us. A huge thanks to him and Coursera for this opportunity. I have learnt a lot of ways till now about python and yes, this course is true that "Python for everybody". Anyone can get benefited...
  • 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.

  • Outstanding way to learn Python! First, let me say that I didn't do the capstone (I kept things cost lite) but I did complete all of the non-capstone classes. These are an exceptional series of classes, and do a phenomenal job of introducing Python in...
  • Excellent and easy to follow. Not trying to prove how smart he is... The problem with many MOOCs is that the instructor gets full of himself and tries to convince us how smart he/she is. Dr. Chuck was absolutely not like that, I found myself wishing...

    A well-structured course series for people with less or no programming background
    Dr. Chuck's Python courses cover all the necessary information you need to successfully start coding in Python.
    The modules cover more than just python programming itself. XML, JSON, web services, DB and OOP basics and more are explained in good detail to enable you to grasp how these things relate with Python.
    Hands down one of the best well-structured video modules/series out there!!
    (There are also bonus vids which include interviews with well known people in the computer world)
  • Simplicity as its best
    This guy, Charles Severance is one of the best teachers I've ever seen in any of the online tutorial course so far. What is love about him is the way he teaches in the flow which is steady and gradual and you get the knowledge in a stepwise process. Another thing is what motivates the students is the bonus chapter which includes the Computing Talks and the office hours. I don't think there is a better way of presenting the online course like Charles did. Thank you very much Charles. You are Awesome.

    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.

    Hats of to you doctor Chunk
    Earlier I was attending "algorithms ,divide and conquer" from Stanford University and I found it really tough to understand. Still my last coding assignment is not completed.I was a bit upset , I was just checking other courses on coursera and this one happened. I found it so interesting that I sat for 3 straight nights and finished it in 3 days. I am a great fan of dr Chunk work and have infact cancelled all my schedules to attend classes for other 4 sessions.

    HELLLLLLO!!!!

    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.

    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...
