This Specialization builds on the success of the Python for Everybody course and will introduce fundamental programming concepts including data structures, networked application program interfaces, and databases, using the Python programming language. In the Capstone Project, you’ll use the technologies learned throughout the Specialization to design and create your own applications for data retrieval, processing, and visualization.
This course aims to teach everyone to learn the basics of programming computers using Python. The course has no pre-requisites and avoids all but the simplest mathematics. Anyone with moderate computer experience should be able to master the materials in this course.
If you have some Python experience, and you want to take it to the next level, this practical, hands-on Learning Path will be a helpful resource. Video tutorials in this Learning Path will show you how to use Python for distributed task processing, perform large-scale data processing in Spark using the PySpark API, and tackle machine learning tasks with Python.
With a gentle learning curve, Python is readable, writeable, and endlessly powerful. Its simplicity lets you become productive quickly. This Learning Path provides a solid introduction to Python, and then teaches you about algorithms, data modeling, data structures, and other tools that make Python the ideal choice for working with data.
