This course will introduce students to the basics of the Structured Query Language (SQL) as well as basic database design for storing data as part of a multi-step data gathering, analysis, and processing effort. The course will use SQLite3 as its database. We will also build web crawlers and multi-step data gathering and visualization processes. We will use the D3.js library to do basic data visualization.
This course will cover Chapters 14-15 of the book “Python for Informatics”.
Week 1: Object Oriented Python
Week 2: Basic Structured Query Language
Week 3: Data Models and Relational SQL
Week 4: Many-to-Many Relationships in SQL
Week 5: Databases and Visualization
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.
