I've watched the preliminary videos and I've got to say this seems like some really good stuff. If you like programming challenges, you should definitely sign up for this course. All the assignments and video lecturers are available from the start so you can study at your own pace but you need to submit your assignments on time to receive credit.
Also look out for:
- Algorithms: Design and Analysis, Part 1
- Coding the Matrix: Linear Algebra through Computer Science Applications
They're both starting in 12 days on July 1st.
