Python Data Representations
This course will continue the introduction to Python programming that started with Python Programming Essentials. We’ll learn about different data representations, including strings, lists, and tuples, that form the core of all Python programs. We will also teach you how to access files, which will allow you to store and retrieve data within your programs. These concepts and skills will help you to manipulate data and write more complex Python programs. By the end of the course, you will be able to write Python programs that can manipulate data stored in files. This will extend your Python programming expertise, enabling you to write a wide range of scripts using Python This course uses Python 3. While most Python programs continue to use Python 2, Python 3 is the future of the Python programming language. This course introduces basic desktop Python development environments, allowing you to run Python programs directly on your computer. This choice enables a smooth transition from online development environments. Rice University is consistently ranked among the top 20 universities in the U.S. and the top 100 in the world. Rice has highly respected schools of Architecture, Business, Continuing Studies, Engineering, Humanities, Music, Natural Sciences and Social Sciences and is …

Interesting, Engaging and usefully challenging

Loved this course and the tutors! I started a lot of online courses but always lost interest as they were focussed on data types etc.. but then this course takes a different route and keeps you engaged all through. I was able to finish the course 1 and 2 of the specialization in 4–5 days

This course has gave me the essential tools to do Python scripting in a professional manner! Recommended!

Great course and great assignments!
Crina F B –
Great course, but the final test was really difficult.
Ray M –
Very well thought out course. Glad I took it.
Rodrigo B M –
Excellent course. Very nice projects.
Tougher than 1st part of the series, that’s why i am giving 3 stars:) Just kidding.

Excellent course on python data structures like strings, lists and tuples. Hands on exercises are really superb.
Nishin K V –
Simple coverage.. but exercises and guidance to them is good

You can increase the duration of course and difficulty level by taking any python real time software project
Joanne H P C –
Important basics covered – different data types in python and how to read and write CSV files into python.
Samantha R –
didnt enjoy – too few relevant exercises/examples that enable one to do the quiz. I found the University of Michigan course to be more comprehensive. Sorry guys
Mark J S –
It was challenging. Some elements of the projects did not make sense as they were presented, but the instructors gave a decent explanation of why those would be relevant, e.g. something would have already been determined in a real life use of such a function. Definitely increased my understanding of Python and I’m ready and eager to move forward in Rice’s certificate program.
very good course
The programming project is very interesting !

If you are new to Python and wants a flying start, this course (and specialization) is for you! Comprise lectures, good material and fun exercises. Sure, there are plenty of other providers for introductory courses in Python but here you will get it all in one place. Even as a semi–seasoned programmer in Python, I found this course to answer some questions that have popped up over the years. Highly recommended!
Andrey V –
Great course for understanding lists and file manipulation!

Professors Rixner and Warren have done an excellent job of presenting the material this material. What I especially like about the courses in the Specialization is the projects that are offered. The projects for you to think beyond the everyday programming that you may experience at work or some other venue. They also are very good about reinforcing the concepts that are offered in the lectures. I have been at the novice level in Python for the last couple of years by trying to learn on my own and other Coursera courses. I have thus far found that this Specialization to be one of the best. I’m glad that you have taken the time to produce these courses. I hope in the future to take what I learn here and make career change. Thank you

Excellent course! Dr. Rixner and Dr. Warren explained the material clearly, which significantly helped my understanding. I found the final project to be quite challenging compared to quizzes and examples covered in lecturers and had to heavily rely on the discussion forum. Other than that, great class overall. Highly recommended.

The fourth week relies more heavily on the local computing machine instead of using online codesculptor, and thus I would definitely love to see more demonstration on that. The explanation on list and tuple, character and others are thorough and clear. In overall, this is a good quality course. Notice that If you are considering taking this course, the first course “Python Programming Essential” is almost a must–have unless you have had any prior Python coding experience

Excellent course. I enjoyed so much and learned a lot. Thank you.

The final Project was really challenging (for me), but I am really grateful for the help provided in the Forums.

Es un buen curso, pero falta abordar sin fin de temas, diccionarios, por ejemplo
In the final project, I find that some requirements are not clear enough. Maybe I am not a good English user so I cannot completely understand the meaning of some sentence. Except this, everything is great.
Jalal A –
This course is really fantastic for beginners and those who want to start learning python. Instructors teach the essentials and principles of the python language patiently and fun.
Facundo F –
Excellent course, and a challenging final project. I wish I had more time to debugg it and get 100%, but I need continue with the specialization. 10/10 would recommend!
Dev N P –
This course was great. I would like to thank instructors and the Coursera Team to provide me the opportunity to learn this course
Mohamed G A A –
an awesome course with many tasks that let you program and understand many of python language
Manuel F –
Very good course
jingyao z –
great course and content covered, when i finally get the full points of the project , i feel more motivated to continue the next two courses!
Jarom F –
I’m new to Python. The projects at the end of this course took time since they required research and troubleshooting. That’s where I learned the most.
Aleksandar A F –
same as last time! tempo was great! however, week 4 the practice project was REALLY unclear to me and I believe it could use extra instructions thanks!
Jimena M M –
Really interesting and entertaining course

Difficult from a having little background in programming but exercises, online tools referenced and discussion forums are extremely helpful in gaining confidence to look into self–study to improve knowledge base and understanding. I think I will have a tough time continuing but I don’t mind being patient given learning tools available nowadays are very user–friendly and responsive, and don’t penalize you as severely as the barriers to learning would in the past.
Nicholas L –
Subpar followup to the first course in this specialization. Felt entirely unprepared for the week 4 final project based on the material covered in the previous weeks. Based on the volume of posts in the forums for week 4, the professors should be well aware of this (hopefully that means they modify the final project).
WEI Z –
Learned a lot from this course!
Zhuoyu C –
Good course but still the same problem, too much on detail and reduce the charming of python
Disha G –
it is a basic course. good for beginners.

It was a very good course to learn about basic data representations in Python and handling files using Python. I recommend this course for people who need Python for writing test cases and compare files
