Acerca del Curso

Functional programming is becoming increasingly widespread in industry. This trend is driven by the adoption of Scala as the main programming language for many applications. Scala fuses functional and object-oriented programming in a practical package. It interoperates seamlessly with both Java and Javascript. Scala is the implementation language of many important frameworks, including Apache Spark, Kafka, and Akka. It provides the core infrastructure for sites such as Twitter, Netflix, Zalando, and also Coursera. In this course, you will discover the elements of the functional programming style and learn how to apply them usefully in your daily programming tasks, such as modeling business domains or implementing business logic. You will also develop a solid foundation for reasoning about functional programs, by touching upon proofs of invariants and the tracing of execution symbolically. The course is hands-on; most units introduce short programs that serve as illustrations of important concepts and invite you to play with them, modifying and improving them. The course is complemented by a series of programming projects as homework assignments. Recommended background: You should have at least one year of programming experience. Proficiency with Java or C# is ideal, but experience with other languages such as C/C++, Python, Javascript, or Ruby is also sufficient. You should have some background in mathematics (e.g., algebra, logic, proof by induction). Last, you should have some familiarity with using the command line....

Really good explanation by the instructor. Good assignments. The assignments gave a good insights into functional programming. I loved the way the problems were decomposed into neat smaller functions.

As expected Martin is awesome in explaining principle of functional programming. I have started reading the book as well to make sure I keep up with the knowledge which I have gained from this course.

The programming assignments are very informative and well-documented. The guidelines are there to scope your project while allowing you to explore many solutions at once.

This was a hard road for me. This course was really my first dive into programming. It took a little prep work from me to successfully pass this but it was well worth it!

From the master itself. Not only it contains description of the basics of FP programming but also interesting and concise solutions to a few classic programming problems.

Great intro to scala and functional programming!

I'm time poor and I found this course excellent in terms of chunking tasks in manageable exercises over a number of weeks.

This course allowed me to leverage my skills in Scala and learn more about functional programming, and how to use the concepts to design algorithms and code efficiently.

This is one of the courses that explain every aspect/feature of scala in a way that will be in memory for a long time. The examples and exercises are really thoughtful.

The course is great, it offers an introduction to functional programming using concrete but illustrative examples. Focusing on concepts rather than the language itself.

hard course at the beginning, but very rewarding for those who manage to hang on: you need to mature the concepts and practice ! Scala is a hard programming language !

It was great and challenging course. Every software engineer should take this course to learn the fundamentals of functional programming and how to write concise code.

A fun adventure into functional programming in scala, I would recommend this course to anyone interested in programming in scala and functional programming in general.

Excellent class, very detailed and well explained! The exercises and assignments are very interesting and help understand better the concepts explained in the videos.

Great professor, great assignments

More than what I'de expect from an online course

I got more information than what i'de expect to get from about 20 hours of lectures

It was a great course, though I think the last exercise is really hard and I had to look up for help on the Internet (other people who have solved this exercise too)

Amazing!! It would be great if the limit dates were defined by the enroll date instead of having a specific period of the year it can be done. But really good work!!

This course is really helpful in learning basics of Scala and having basic understanding of functional programming. Now, I truly like functional programming! Thanks!

It is a pleasure to watch Dr. Odersky unveiling concepts of Functional Program, taking a keen student along with him. Fantastic course! I will recommend to everyone.

Really good course! The examples presented were specifically chosen to show the advantages and differences between functional programming and imperative programming.

Muy bueno, si además hubiera traducciones al castellano, sería perfecto para que los que no tenemos mucho conocimiento de inglés pudiéramos sacarle más rendimiento.

Great course! It explains FP concepts in a clear and concise way.

Every word said it is important and the assignments are a great way to cement the concepts learnt.

This course was not easy for me. It can be mind-bending. Things are learnt; however, when the mind is bent. Refer back to the lectures when completing assignments.

Outstanding course taught by the master of Scala. But it is tough! I learned a lot about functional programming but be prepared to work really hard in this course.

Found it as an example of a top class form of material explanation, material itself is a nice preparation to a deep dive into functional world, highly recommended.

Always great to learn from the very best. You learn scala but you also learn important concepts about functional programming that you can apply in other contexts

Before taking this I in front of tasks usually lingered by "what to do", while after taking this when getting lack of tasks I always moan about "What can I do".

I had to go through the lectures multiple times for the intricate content it has. However there's enormous amount knowledge that one can gain from these lectures.
