This course was really interesting and did a good job introducing complicated topics in usefully simplified form. It was a pleasure to listen to the instructor and I got everything I wanted out of it.
I have not found an easy way to learn how to code with python language. Mentor are really helpful and Dr Chuck is one of the most self explain professor that I have met in my three university career.

Very good course to build on basic knowledge of python. Content is accessible, lectures are well presented and easy to understand. Using python for tasks such as web scraping shows the potential of python whilst still being fairly accessible for the majority of students.

This chapter was truly helpful, as an engineer you have to understand how computers are communicating with each other via the internet, rest systems and APIs are part of this process which were covered in this chapter. Thank you Dr.Chuck for being the amazing professor.

Thank You dr Chuck for the great courses. I am working on my final project as a student at Sumatera Institute of Technology (Indonesia). This course helps me a lot since i am working on data scraping through marketplaces, and build a recommender system from these data.

It was an amazing journey going through this course. Got knowledge about the data transfer between web servers, how to extract the data from web, serialisation, de-serialisation, xml schema, json schema etc. Loved doing assignments, overall a great course by Dr. Chuck.

Fantastic course to discover how to get the most of python. Essential course if you want to go further on your coding skills with Python.
The teacher is incredible, he explains very well and make it very easy to catch everything at the moment.
I highly recommend it :)
Compared to the previous two courses, this course is relatively much more hard, and more useful. With the clear instructions of the teacher, I am now able to use python to get access to data from the web. I am sure this will help me a lot in my future life and career.

Looking back at when I started and could barely write 3 line code I understand how simply amazing this course is. I can see progress and my knowledge grew so much thanks to all materials that are provided by Dr. Chuck. Can't wait to go further in this specialization.

course its self quit self explanatory but i like to add few things
1 - Need little bit explanation how to use real life scenario
2 - JSON part is quit short but now a days JSON is big thing, so i suggest please keep eye on current trends and elaborate topic accordingly.

The assignments are becoming more and more difficult. But very rewarding when you finally get the solution. It's very important to understand every line of code from the previous chapters.
But again, very well explained (also by the assistants in the discussion forum)

I was greatly engaged and challenged by this course. Each week of work has only one or two assignments, but they all require careful attention to the lecture and the code provided to complete the tests. I am very glad for the material provided and the examples given.

I really enjoyed this course. I am not really good at finishing MOOCs but this one is different. I really love Dr. Chuck's passion for teaching and appreciate all the effort he and his team had put on his book, materials, and assignments. This course is unbelievable.

Definitely a novice level, but appropriately paced, course introducing web data fundamentals. The course gradually implements key "Pythonic" modules that allow you to connect to websites--parsing and extracting their real-world data! Well taught Dr. chuck, thank you!
by Brandon M•
In my opinion this serves as a good introductory course for web services; it doesn't really delve deeper into the abundant knowledge needed to become a professional but it keeps it masterfully focused on the topic (Python) and Dr. Chuck's explanations are very good
by Essam Q•
This course was fun and not hard to understand, because Dr. Charles has a great way of simplifying the concepts, and the assignments were great and effective. Also a great thing is that the course have a clear vision of where you are in the path of learning Python.

Great course. If you want to know some of the basic of how to get data from the web (web scraping, api's) and how to use that data (json, xml), this course if for you. Dr. Chuck uses primarily python, but many api's and the data structures are language agnostic.
The assignments were more difficult than the previous courses and I literally have to pull all of my limited Python knowledge to finish it. The journey was not easy but because of these assignments, I am now feeling much more comfortable with Python than before.
by MARIN P•
This course covers a lot of different material and is, in my opinion, more difficult than the previous two Python courses offered in this specialization.
Overall, very good. The only critique I have would be to clarify some of the instructions for the assignments.
by Sam Z•
I was shocked when I saw the inventor of Python from this course. But now I got used to see any inventors of Internet. After you met those Internet Inventors, you felt anything about Internet is simple.
The way Prof. thought was very fun and easy to learn. Great!
by Ananya S•
Once I got started with courses by Dr Chuck, I haven't been able to resist doing all of them. I love his courses and I'm so grateful that I could learn more in a few weeks than I'd previously managed in several months. Thank you, Dr Chuck. Coursera is a godsend.
by HONG Y•
It is kind of diffiicult for me since I don't know anything about web service. I think it will be nice if there can be some recommendation of books or videos to learn the basic knowledge of web service. Still, thank you professor for giving a such great course.
by Shivam I•
This course introduces to the Json, XML and other python modules which are very fundamental to Web programming. Professor has nicely covered all important topics and the course gives a start that one needs to take interest and learn more about different modules.
by Vaibhav K•
The course is great.
There's just one thing i always crave for in this specialization, there are only limited Graded Courses that are really challenging.
(one of them was such a mess, i couldn't proceed for 5 days.)
The exercises are really fun. Highly recommended.
by Alejandro M•
It is an excellent course (as the previous ones).
The lectures and examples are very helpful.
I already work as a Programmer and courses like this help me improve my skills even further by learning from other people experiences.
Thanks Dr Check and Teaching Staff!!

Charles Severance is perhaps the greatest instructor of a programming language that I have ever encountered. Not only are the lectures engaging but the assignments are relevant and I have been able to apply what I have learned immediately to my day to day life.

Thank you so much Dr. Severance and Thanks University of Michigan I learned a lot during this course and realized how powerful Python is I hope to take other related courses with the help of Coursera, Dr. Severance and the University of Michigan.
