Very interesting and fine course, in this course I learn how to solve Nested data and new a new thing i.e REST API which seems best in course 3 now I am excited about course 4. Thanking you Michigan
This was a really excellent course. The functional project at the end helped me understand how recommendation systems work and now I'm very excited to try to build a similar system for books I love.

Overall the course is good, but the tool for doing the homework and test is the worst. Wasted too much time trying to figuring out how to get things just right for the automated grader. And as a busy professional I don't really have time to waste like that.

Went from zero to sixty. The final question on the last test took forever because the dataset is flawed and there is no ['Ratings'] for two of the movies. Would have been nice to know with ANY sort of feedback at some point before you put it all together

The API exercises are too easy and then when it comes to the real deal I didnt feel prepare, you guys should take it easier and step by step, way too much explaining and not too much hands on deck with each step of the code, and to do that, shorter videos

I understand that APIs are an integral part of getting into programming but, I feel that this course was just streamlined to make use of APIs. The runestone textbook had issues with caching the responses and would often lead to wrong data accumulation.

In general it is a good course but it would be more practical to teach django for the http request/response part, specially if you think that the industry works in terms of backend and frontend, therefore, professionally it would much appreciated.

I was a bit disappointed at week 3. I took help for almost 90% of the project work. There were no practice programs for week 3 and for a slow learner like I lost a lot of confidence and I'm back to start feeling like a dumb person.

The lessons on REST API need more information and more examples about the subject.
Also, the instructions in the final project should be cleaner. If a list is required, the specifically write, "output is a list. this list will contain".

The tool is TERRIBLE!!! To much bugs that waste tons of times!!!
Fine, then, except for the tool, everything else of the course is fine. But the course is DEFINITELY NOT for beginners. At lease take a basic python course before this one.

Compared to the first two classes in the Python 3 Specialization, this one has fewer exercise opportunities and is highly focused on a few concepts. The final project is a bear, due largely to challenges in the Runestone environment.

This would be much better if you could use an external IDE. The final project wasn't realistic because we were stuck using the Runestone code window which makes it very difficult to code as you would in a real job.

The final assessment is a nightmare as your CACHE File is broken. My code works perfectly in my IDE but I never could make it work on your evaluation tool. Wasted 5 days on this.
by Matthew F•
the final project was very difficult and had to learn a package that only applied to this class and will never be used outside of class and has less function

Good course. The training environment is a bit rough to work in just for this specific course. Pay attention to the instrcutions to get it to run right
by Aastha S•
Last module doesn't have enough practice questions to complete the project without any hassle. Apart from this, the lectures are pretty dope.
by Michelle M V•
The Runestone environment becomes very slow once you're working with multiple functions and is sensitive to bugs.
by Edwin Y•
the last question of project is such a challenge, the run time error is not helping in many cases
by Inderpal S•
API Section exercises could be better. They are not hard but the configuration is intensive.
by Nidhi K•
The runestone environment often gives mistakes that are not actually present
by Joseph T•
really not enough explanation and practice question through out week three.
by Yongjian F•
The API documents are not so useful. The final project is fun though.
by Helena L•
Hope the course material could be more related to the final project.
by Paul B•
Last assignment was screwy with the runestone implemenation.
by LIBIN W•
good course but concepts in 3rd week was a real quickie.
by Yash R•
feedback: week 3 modules were not structured properly.
