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.

This course covers a lot but the lectures are poor and project work is too tedious. In the lectures, he seems to be reading a script and any elaboration is rushed. I found myself pausing and rewinding a lot. Generally, it is read far too fast for me to take it in. The projects are a bit clever for their own good and there are problems with clarity and errors that are not being addressed. You have to use the forums best before you start doing a weekly project to find out where the problems are. It seems they post their courses and forget about them rather than improving them based on user feedback. That said, provided you have the time to spend a few days lost in code then I'd recommend this course for sure.

The first two weeks of this course had a smooth intonation to it but the third week suddenly became a point of lots of things packed here and there. API's were introduced and which was not bad to learn the timeframe was too short and sometime a bit tedious to deal with.
The project at the end of the third week was a simple one which could have been easily done if not for the buggy runestone environment. The same code that fails once worked when the page was refreshed syninymous to switching on and off the computer solution. Nevertheless I adore Proffesor Resnick and woud love to attend more courses done by him. He is the only saving grace that would make me recommend this course to anyone.

The beginning of the course was fine
(The first two weeks). Week 3 was a hard fight to overcome. I couldn't understand why we were suddenly dealing with API. Compared to the previous 2 courses (in this Python3 specialization) I think working with APIs has been difficult, I think it would be helpful if there were more exercises to work with APIs in the material before addressing the project. The final project requires a lot of analysis in the forums to discover how to do things. And the Q6 of the final project was very complex to overcome

The first two course are great and I learned a lot. They prepared you to take the final test. This course did not prepare me for the final. It was a struggle to get through and I needed help at several points from the forum. I am going to try to attempt to write code using several API's outside of this course before I move on to make sure I understand this information.

Difficult last project w just Runestone -- would recommend doing project on Jupyter to actually see what's going on w/ your code then pasting to Runestone to make it work for the class. Runestone is fine for smaller quizzes but 2/2 size of output window (as to what's actually happening in your code) really only good for a grade.

Weeks 1 and 2 were fine (a bit too easy, but fine nonetheless)... but week 3 was a nightmare. Basically, week 3 is comprised of a few video lectures that are not that easy to follow, no exercises at all... and then... a project that was almost impossible to understand. This huge difficulty spike made the course a slog...

Great information but there are issues with the way Runestone limits Python functionality. For the final project I had to use an Incognito window to prevent bugs, and the directions were unclear. It took 2 days of trial and error to figure this out, and the course staff was not helpful in resolving the issue.

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".

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.

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.

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

Last module doesn't have enough practice questions to complete the project without any hassle. Apart from this, the lectures are pretty dope.

The Runestone environment becomes very slow once you're working with multiple functions and is sensitive to bugs.

The API documents are not so useful. The final project is fun though.
