Course Description

This course will show how one can treat the Internet as a source of data. We will scrape, parse, and read web data as well as access data using web APIs. We will work with HTML, XML, and JSON data formats in Python. This course will cover Chapters 11-13 of the textbook “Python for Everybody”. To succeed in this course, you should be familiar with the material covered in Chapters 1-10 of the textbook and the first two courses in this specialization. These topics include variables and expressions, conditional execution (loops, branching, and try/except), functions, Python data structures (strings, lists, dictionaries, and tuples), and manipulating files. This course covers Python 3.

Excellent course for people wanting to learn programming with Python from scratch. The instructor is excellent and very engaging so would highly recommend.

This was a short nice course: 30 minutes of lecture each week with short quizzes and assignments. The professor is cool and explains the contents simply and intuitively. The course has a free and open textbook. In addition, the professor puts some extra material such as interview which you can enjoy. Recommended for warm-up.

Short and sweet course. I ended up spending one day for each "week" of the course. Learned a lot relative to the time invested so kodus to the professor. The material is high quality. The problem is that it is too short, and the assignments are not challenging enough. You solve one (pretty trivial) problem as assignment each week. Learning programming is best by doing and this course simply does not supply that suffciently.
