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 familiarity 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 course was a little more involved than I expected, but nevertheless worth the time you invest in it.

Need a bit more active participation in discussion forum. Other than that very well articulated course.

This course is very good, but subject sequence, presentation design and user interaction could improve.

I took more than 12 hours to finish the assignment for week 4. The estimate (3h) is likely to be wrong.

The source provides with great theory, but practice assignments sometimes get way too complicated.

Bit chaotic at the start. Later some nice functional programming paradigms and scala internals.

Not very (functional programming) beginner friendly, but absolutely worth the pain and effort!!

Covers fundamental theory well and examples and exercises are chosen well to make it practical.

I really enjoyed completing challenges, but videos were a bit too theoretical for my taste.

Assignments up until the last one were relatively easy, which is the only criticism I have.

the only problem here is the assigments, they are hard and unrelated somehow to the videos
