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....

It took me much longer than expected to finish the course and sometimes it made me feel stupid and helpless. Diving into functional programming was a mind bending experience, totally worth time spent!

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.

Everything was clear, material was structured, exercises were not difficult but I thing it is the best course to start learning Scala as a functional language.

Thanks for this great course.

Martin explained all the concepts clearly.

I learned a new language and more importantly, some new functional programming concepts!

This course is an excellent introduction to functional programming with a complete syllabus and good and clear lectures. Odersky and his team did a great job.

A very very good course. The tasks can be a bit demanding but definitely what is needed and worth it to learn not only Scala but functional programming as well

I really enjoyed the class. Started it long ago, but then had to change jobs until my schedule settled down. Glad I could complete it from where I left off.

I liked very much your programming assignments which were excellent (and sometimes demanding) supplements to excellent Martin's lectures. Thank you very much!

If you really want more, scream it out louderIf you on the board, bring out the fireAnd light it up, take it up higherGonna push it to the limit, give it more

Nice introduction to Scala and Functional programming paradigm as a whole. Assignments and coding examples discussed in course material are also very helpful.

Very nice course of functional programming. But I also expected a little bit more - examples with ways of making async requests for resources (files/http/db).

A lot of fun, and though taking this course for review, I came upon a number of explanations that deepened my prior understanding of concepts and techniques.

Very amazing descriptions of the course material, and if coupled with the book from Mr Martin, this is the best learning material for scala I have found yet.

GENIAL, antes de empezar el curso yo había leído el libro de Martin odersky "beggining scala" y los conocimientos aprendidos ahí los aplico en este curso :D

This helps a lot to learn about Functional Programming and improve my Scala skills.

BTW, I find recursion is interesting and it changes my mind about coding.

The Course is really hard. I would recommend to start it once you have at least general understanding of Scala (read some books, try to solve simple tasks).

A challenging course of the highest quality. Martin Odersky does his best at sharing key insights about the way Scala works and how to think functionally.

Mr Odersky attitude is very "Swiss" –pragmatic but extremely rigorous. I had no previous knowledge, and can now play with Scala in a satisfactory way...
