The class itself is easy but the assignments do take some time. Lectures and discussions basically outline all of the code for you so if you have any prior experience, this class should be extremely easy. Lectures and discussions were both very useful in solving the assignments so take a look before you start. Grading on the lab reports are pretty lenient. There were 7 total lab reports and 1 final project which is ~2 labs worth of work.
I was really worried before taking this class because I had absolutely no coding experience but honestly I was worried for nothing. The first 2 assignments were a rough learning curve simply because I had zero experience and didn't really know what to do at all, but they were simple enough that I did well on them. Following those first 2 homework assignments, I learned to really utilize the discussion forums and the lab recordings. The discussion forum is super helpful and the professor or one of the TA's usually answers really quickly and you can usually get your problem resolved with that. I would HIGHLY recommend watching the lab recordings. The TA's provide a lot of pseudocode and explanation that I would not have been able to solve the homework without. If your TA isn't super helpful, you can always watch another TA's videos because one of the benefits of having everything recorded and posted is that you can refer to other TA's.
