QZ is taking this course right now, spending 5 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
The course is very hands-on. Students get to work on a useful and interesting project: A Meme Generator. The instructors are relaxed and fun. However, the subject of the course might not prove useful to every web developer. And you can learn much of what is presented in the course through shorter web tutorials.
