Strongly recommended for anyone who plans to start learning programming without any prior knowledge. Dr. Charles Severance (Dr. Chuck) is so great a lecturer that you will be glad to know him. It is your lost if you miss his lectures.
Explaining every single concept in details and his humour makes programming really fun. His passionate and expertise will help you a lot in progressing through the whole course. If you are worried about not be able to complete this course as a programming layman, give it a try, I believe Dr. Chuck's will be a great inspiration for you. His encouragement will be the force guiding you towards your first step in programming :)
