Student Reviews

Check out the student reviews for the ‘REST APIs with Flask and Python’ course.

  • Abiola A. (5.0/5) “I always used to hate learning web development because apparently i was learning it the full-stack way then I found out I could just focus on backend development, so i searched for a really comprehensive course on backend development with flask and this happened to be the best course ever, i enjoy working on backend a lot better than front-end and this course reignited my interest in web development, especially with the way it was delivered. There are definitely places the course can improve like updating it contents but all in all if you’re a beginner dev or junior python developer this course is your starting point.”
  • Padma S. (5.0/5) “I am new to python coding and this course has really given me a wonderful perspective of the language and the environments. Jose’s lectures were very well put together and most of Jose and his teaching assistants were incredibly patient and helped me along the way wherever I had issues. Will be revisiting the topics to refresh. Thank you.”
  • Derek P. (5.0/5) “Terrific course, both the first part which was a great refresher but also improved my understanding (as I was self-taught on the go in python), and the flask part was excellent also. Highly recommended course.”
  • Anthony Chanco J. (5.0/5) “Wow!!! Very comprehensive. Excellent course and more so a very good Instructor. It’s a one-man job from programming to deployment including setup. Quite overwhelming.”
  • Renato S. (5.0/5) “I loved this course. Jose is a great instructor and kept me motivated along the way. I need to say I knew None about Python, and now I can handle it much better.”
  • John Philip R. (4.0/5) “Some of the codes are outdated, I was sometimes stuck with a single small problem for hours just to get the updated syntax, codes, or techniques. But all in all, I like how you organized this lecture, it is quite helpful!”
  • Demis G. (4.0/5) “It’s an excellent course. Jose teaches very well. For me, the section 9 about deploy Flask in your server had so many contents, and I would like to learn other content instead this, such as tests or more in depth SQL alchemy. Thank you very much for the content!”
  • Chinmay N. (4.0/5) “The overall course is good. Not everything but I have clear understanding on many topics now which were alien to me in past. It will be better if you can reupload the JWT-extended section with latest changes.”
  • Bipin B. (3.0/5) “Overall okay course. Do not expect too much.”
  • Mattias B. (3.0/5) “Not enough coding exercises”
