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!

Absolutely amazing course, I've never enjoyed learning a new programming language as much as through this course. The programming assignments are challenging and interesting too.

Simply unbelievable. I completed twitter scala school before so could skip the language parts. But the rest was truly amazing. Want to revisit the contents again as much as I can.

A very profound introduction to Scala and Functional Programming. This is not just another explanation of syntax and language features. It touches many topics of computer science.

Enjoyed the course! Functional programming is a different way of thinking about programs. Assignments helped to re-enforce the learning. Thanks to Coursera and the course staff !

It is definitely a great course, from which I have enjoyed so much of functional programming and Scala. Hopefully, I can achieved other courses related to functional programming.

Amazing course, well presented, with interesting study cases in every lesson. The course shows very well how rich Scala is as programming language.
I will recommend it to anyone.

Very good introductory course. I'd recommend it for folks who have experience with imperative programming and are trying to transition to a more functional style of programming.

Great introduction to scala. For best results, read the scala book concurrently or immediately after this course. And of course, follow up with a real project on scala at work.

very well taught course. The concept of conciseness is introduced and included in every aspect of this course. A very mathematical approach to problem solving and programming.

A must take course for anyone who wants to get a good hold over syntax and semantics of Scala ... and develop his skills through a purely analytical and functional approach :)

I think the content of week number 6 is a bit complicated so it would be good if it is expended a little bit with a few more examples, other than that the course is excellent

Don't try to learn Scala (or FPL) with less than that. There are easier sources, but none of them are going to make your foundations really muscular like the Odersky classes.

I have been programming in Java four years ago (all my degree) and this course help me too much. Understand the functional programming is very important for every CS student.

I have started understanding Scala from different perspective as I am new to functional programming - tough though and a long way to go. But I am happy that I am trying out.

Well structured initiation to functional programming with Scala. You convey very well the mindset required for functional thinking. Thanks for making this course available !

I have participated in this course with pleasure. The functional programming is depict clearly and systematically with great examples - that is why I blame it for my 100% :)

very nice course . For me the content is very dense , I end up watching videos twice .
It is challenging. I just love it . Feels like stop doing anything just learn scala :-)

Excellent content, professor and exercises. I'm really learning what I expected before I begun this course - functional programming concepts and techniques. Thank you all!

I highly enjoyed this course, there were aspects of the scala syntax that befuddled me but were made clear quickly. It also solidified my grip on combinatorial searching.

fascinating course, but in my opinion assignments are focused a bit to much on solving algorithmic problems, and a bit to less on practicing functional programming skills

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.
