Do not trust the recommended background from the course description page - "Familiarity with basic programming at the level of Stanford's CS106B is required". I had basic familiarity with Linux/Git/Web(HTML/CSS/JS), but this course was difficult. You really have to invest quite a lot of time to even grasp the basics of the lecture videos. Overall, it is still a great course I would want to re-take later when I am much more skilled in CS.
This is the second MOOC I'm taking at Coursera. I signed up to pick up Python from scratch. So far (5 weeks into the course), the course has nothing short of perfect. The lecture videos are very clear, and exercises/assignments are very helpful in learning. I especially like the clarity of both Jennifer and Paul in the videos. I had a hard time listening to long and monotoned videos from a couple of other MOOC courses, but these professors rock. Can't say enough good things about the course, so try it out yourself.
