Your answer is in the course description.  I've pasted it below for convenience:

Recommended Background
The course assumes students are familiar with programming covered by most introductory courses -- this is not an introductory programming course.  Conversely, it is also not a particularly advanced course -- a couple good prior programming courses should be enough.  Students should be comfortable with variables, conditionals, arrays, linked lists, stacks, and recursion (though recursion will be reviewed and expanded upon), and the difference between an interface and an implementation. Students should be eager to write programs in languages new to them.  Later parts of the course analyze basic object-oriented concepts and contrast them with those of other languages, so familiarity with Java or a closely related language (e.g., C#) is helpful, but not required for homework assignments.

 How would
 this suit a total programming beginner? Or is this oriented
 at more experienced folks?

 Hello Code
 Crew!Wanted to share this free coursera course I'll
 be taking starting 10/3.  The focus will be overall
 programming skills and the concepts behind all languages.
  It would be great to get a study group together of any of
 you are interested in also taking the course.  Below is a
 brief description but you can get more info at:
 
 
 
 https://www.course...­
 
 "Investigate the basic concepts behind
 programming languages, with a strong emphasis on the
 techniques and benefits of functional programming. Use the
 programming languages ML, Racket, and Ruby in ways that will
 teach you how the pieces of a language fit together to
 create more than the sum of the parts. Gain new software
 skills and the concepts needed to learn new languages on
 your own."
 
 
 
 
 Thanks,
 Alex
