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.
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

I did the course one and two from the specialization in python 3 which are really great courses. In this course 3, the first part was fine but the APIs part of the course was really incomplete and it would have been much better If the instructors had given more exercises. Another things that is very bad is the final project, although the first five exercises were ok the exercise six failed most of the time and the teachers do not answer any of my questions.

This course gives learners the skill which learners can not take away. I am disappointed that we can not apply what we learn, requests_with_caching, while we leave Runestone interactive for other Python environment. In addition, it is not a good instructional design that this course takes 3 weeks to teach only one method.
The first two courses in this specialization were great. The project for this course was challenging. I would have liked more exercises in before the project to better prepare you. The topic was also not as interesting as the first two courses in this specialization.

i do not like your in browser tool. Debugging was very difficult, and trying to make sense of your fake API's and getting the project was awful. The faculty was awesome. So i give you 2 stars

Honestly, it was boring. Yeah, you learn the basics of Python but I think that the course should be more dynamic.

I think you need more practice to be able to accomplish the final test . Paul Resnick great teacher though!

Awful experience with the last assignment, must fix all the Runestone bugs as soon as possible!

I loved all the previous courses, but this one was frustrating, not for the difficulty of the tasks, but because of the week 3, you need to keep the student excercising before the project or it comes almost impossible to do the task.
When I started coding for the project I did not know where to start, I needed some practice and there is not a single excercise in the Runnestone for the student to develop the knowdledge on the topic as the previous courses.
Thats my feedback, you guys are great but you should improve that to help students understand better the APIS topic, it was extremely frustrating. I was waiting for the first time I could do a code from my own and the first time coding CAN NOT be in middle of the project.

Instead of taking advantage of that great tool which is Codelens, this course's last week is almost entiley based on a taylor made module (request_with_cache) which can't be debugged with codelens because it is not included. Further more, this module is as well not working on the interpreter, so basically there isn't any other way to work with it different than trial error.
It is a pitty given that the first 2 weeks of the course are awesome. It is the third one which supposedly contains the added value, the one that is less flexible and not clear.

Unfortunately this course was not good at all compared to the rest of them. They didn't have energy to teach, and just skipped over the API, the Runstone project has a lot of errors, so you can't keep up. The teaching staff does not reply to your questions, it was a mess in General. Waste of time, all my codes were correct but the runstone project showed it was wrong, until I logged in again at night, used the same code, then it worked.

This course does have good content, but unfortunately Runestone "ruins" the experience. Especially with the last assessment on week 3. If you are going to take this course READ THE FORUM on the last exercise. Cache data is missing and will lead to buggy output that has nothing to do with your code! And all of these errors are from a long time ago that the course admins won't fix, despite posting updates to Ruin Stone!

Don't liked this course. Too easy. In the final lesson only few api's are studied. The only useful thing really I have been told is looking up the docs. I knew it prior to taking this course.

Good the idea in the final exam but bad doing it due to the change of the server page please fix that problem and make some changes to solve that errors.

Save your time and money this course ends with a useless project that doesn't teach you anything even remotely valuable for modern python usage

Poor and non-reusable wrapper for requests. Don't see a point of practising it.
