I struggled with this course. Although it requires programming experience in "an object oriented language" (I had Python), it takes you through Ruby from the point of view of someone who knows C and/or Java. Once I was through that I still felt at sea with many of the exercises; new tools were introduced before I was familiar with the previous ones. Although I completed the course (with an 'A' in edX terms) I didn't feel I understood the material thoroughly (and was sunk in part 2 of this course).

I had some experience with Rails and Ruby before I took this course. The videos are great, the lecturers explain the concepts quite clearly, although sometimes Prof. Fox talks too fast, and the pacing of the materials is quite fast. The quizzes are easy, but the programming assignments can get challenging especially sometimes the instructions aren't quite clear. If you have a little experience with Ruby and Rails, you'll do great. If not, you must be prepared to learn SOA, REST, Ruby, Rails, TDD, and BDD in just 6 weeks.
