Pretty easy, overall.
I would recommend the class because it truly is a skill builder, and if you aren't a coding guru, this course will teach you some of the basics. It is fundamental in learning how companies present their financial data to users and the formats in which they report to the SEC etc.
The class was very dry in content, but the technological humor was what kept most of us awake. I learned AIS terminology and how to code efficiently. After implementing the information learned in the course, I was able to write code for AIS on my own, and boy was it a great feeling to see the text successfully transform in a web page.

Advice for students:
To successfully complete the course and grasp a good understanding of the content taught, I would highly recommend that a student purchase the text books required for the course and ACTUALLY READ them. I've heard complaints from other students who were not able to understand lines of code and their meaning because they simply did not read prior to starting the task given in class.
