This course was excellent, however I did find myself investing a lot more time in it than the recommended hours. For those with little or no experience in programming they could have done more to explain the basics, but then this was the first time this course was held. I am really surprised how much I did learn here, and I am now glad that I invested all the extra hours. I would really recommend that anyone who is interested in this course make sure they have Processing and all the necessary Android tools installed BEFORE you begin.

Loved this course, really inspiring, great fun, very creative. I think you could do this with little programming experience, I have a bit from a previous course, but my partner didn't and got on fine with it also. Since it is fun and if you are interested, there's enough guidance to get you started. Also, Processing has many supportive sites and tutorials, plus it's all free!

First off: I won't recommend this course, if you are completely new to programming, as it won't teach you enough programming basics in a structured way, it's just not that type of a course. I had some previous programming knowledge in Python (one coursera course), so it was doable to get adopted to the Syntax. This course is basically a "Processing" course, directed to someone who already had some exposure to programming and is interested in artistic stuff, like interactive games, applications and generative design. It gives quite an overview of what you can do in processing. However, for a university course it's seems not structured and focused enough and it will switch topics fastly on a weekly basis, which makes it hard to keep you engaged on a topic. The worst week was week 5 (of 6), which deals with the unrelated facebook-api, by providing php and javascripts. I would recommend the lectureres to get rid of that week. Still you can get quite something out of it.

I'm starting this course in a couple of weeks and I'm doing a little pre-course work in it as I'm giving a little talk in online education in the Fall. I'm trying to find a class similar to this in a traditional classroom. I have started to play around with Sonic Paint in prep for this Coursera class and I really like it. Stay tuned...
