This course will introduce the core data structures of the Python programming language. We will move past the basics of procedural programming and explore how we can use the Python built-in data structures such as lists, dictionaries, and tuples to perform increasingly complex data analysis. This course will cover Chapters 6-10 of the textbook “Python for Everybody”. This course covers Python 3.

TOP REVIEWS FROM PYTHON DATA STRUCTURES
I feel incredible that I knew almost nothing about programming just a month ago. Now I have done two of the courses of the specialization and I can actually understand other basic codes. Great course!
Hello World. It was an excellent opportunity, as a beginner programmer, to learn Python (I have some dreams about lists, dictionaries, tuples, etc). Thanks, Dr. Chuck, Python community, and Coursera.
this class covered what i find to be very confusing topics. After this class i feel that i have a working knowledge of these topics. The class was challenging and the exercises were also challenging.
Challenging for someone with zero experience with coding. Took a fairly long time to grind through the first two courses in the specialisation, but the lectures and course material were very helpful.
About the Python for Everybody Specialization
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.
