great course I learned lot things thank you for you efforts .

but I have tow observations , first about the capstone I waste a lot of time looking for dataset and thinking about an idea for the capstone ,

second observation is that Leo speaks fast and have a weird accent , it's not easy to follow him.

thanks again it was a wonderful course.

Cannot express how grateful i am to this course series. Will recommend to anyone who has needs!

It was a challenge for me and really useful project!

This was a nice closure to the specialization, but a little too complicated to the point where there were almost no students around to get feedback from or give to.
