Python Data Structures (Coursera)

Created by: Delivered by:

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 Informatics”. This course is equivalent to the second half of the 11-week "Programming for Everybody (Python)" course.


Week 1:Chapter Six: Strings

Week 2: Unit: Installing and Using Python

Week 3: Chapter Seven: Files

Week 4: Chapter Eight: Lists

Week 5: Chapter Nine: Dictionaries

Week 6: Chapter Ten: Tuples

Week 7: Graduation

Python Data Structures is course 2 of 5 in 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.
