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.

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!

The best lecturer I've seen for a long time. Unfortunately you need to watch next weeks episodes to get the basics to solve the puzzles.

At times, easy. At other times, very difficult. But it's great to learn from the creator of the language itself. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed this course, even if sometimes seems kind of heavy on the math / logic side, but it was a useful exercise, for me at lest.

This course will make you a better programmer. Take it and persevere through the homework (paradigm shifts don't happen overnight).

Scala programming is very fun, I very like it. The assignments are very challenging, and some are difficult for the beginner step.

Very interesting, more in-depth than any scala tutorial I've read. Best thing is that it gently introduced functional programming.

It's hard to begin with functional programming coming from the imperative paradigm, but this is definitely the best way to start.

My first experience of functional programming is due to this course. This is also the one I enjoyed the most in Coursera so far.

Great introduction to Scala and some more advanced programming/compsci concepts I don't think many other courses would go into.

Good to get the basics directly from the creator of the language.

Enjoyed the course despite I was told many times it's boring.
