Lectures: Brilliant. Prof. Fitzpatrick is an experienced programmer and he is very well accustomed to thinking processes of students. At times he is funny too and keeps you quite engaged in the lecture. I have watched the lectures twice and found equally interesting and informative both the times.
Assignments: This is the best part of this course. The assignments are detailed, precise and challenging enough to impress yourself. You would truly think in an algorithmic manner and would surely arrive at answers if you don't quit. The assignments get interesting every week.
Community and TAs: This is one thing worth notice. I found the TAs very helpful and active. They even provide appropriate hints when you are stuck in assignments.
Inference: The course sticks to its name. It is an introduction to programming with MATLAB. And if it benefits your career, you would fall in love with MATLAB environment. (They even provide a limited period academic license of latest MATLAB version too!) A great course for aiding a career which requires MATLAB as a skill.
