Overall, the course would be most helpful if you already have some coding experience with Python. It would be a good course for getting a hands-on introduction to machine learning and two popular concepts for working with web data. For those who do not want a “theory-heavy” and “math-heavy” introduction and prefer to hack some code, this is a great place to start. However, some of the explanations are skimmed over and you would need to do more reading yourself from other sources in order to gain a good understanding of the algorithms. Full Review  >
