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....

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.

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!

Although the course lacks some details, I really appreciated it, especially the assignments emphasizing the coding format and testing. I learned a lot !

I feel like I learned quite a bit about functional programming. I was always curious about Scala since my college days. I highly recommend this class.

I would have liked to see examples applicable to situations closer to the business reality, despite that, I really liked it and I recommend the course.

High level course. Exercises are academic of nature. You might need more time to finish the exercises. I appreciate that this is a well formed course.

Great Course to be familiar with the functional programming principles. Missing a little bit more solved examples and some more fundamental materail

It could have some more tests for the code in the assignments, otherwise its kind of difficult to test your own code. At least one test per method

I like this course. It can help me about practise programing scala easily. In here, I can learn scala programming quickly with support everyone.

Wish they didn't restructure the old classes, now it offers less of the interesting material. Fantastic course nonetheless, highly recommended.

you can learn a lot and the course is prepared really well. Sometimes I would wish to have some more practical and less mathematical examples.

quite good course & professor, just the exercise is a bit too much for a beginner; more suitable for people who are familiar with the syntax

Homework and exercises need better documentation and need to be less difficult or, at minimum, require more preparation from teaching staff

The assignment is a huge jump from the course content. But overall very well-designed course and learned a lot of algorithms along the way!

More explanations on the basics of the language to start would be helpful. First try to express it in languages and terms that are familiar

Pretty good course on Scala. Only thing they can change is to move Week 4 assignment to week 5 - because Week 5 videos help a lot with it.

Heavy lecture material. Programming assignments require some work or preset knowledge of functional programming to succesfully complite.

The course provide a way to see programming differently. The exercices are very difficult. It would be nice to provide more test cases.

Good way to learn by doing - assignments extend lectures and give additonal approach to deal with the all programming issues.

Good starting course, helps to have a little knowledge of Scala or Java already and also a decent understanding of recursion.

very good course. good organize and materials, and homework assignments.

homework is hard, hope can provide more test cases.

Excellent, still maybe, not enough teacher - students interactions for person who paid for the course. (in forums etc...).

It was good fun to complete it but some of the assignments did take more than 3 hours, more like between 4 and 5 hours
