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.

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!

Scala from the source! Great way to get a great introduction to the language and how it is best applied to problems

This course really helped me to understand the basics of SCALA. I really enjoyed the challenges of this course.

Overall it was a nice course, but I believe sometimes it would progress a little faster than I would expect.

some requirements during the assignments are quite hard to understand, but for the rest is a great course.

Great course, I have learned quite a lot. Perhaps not the best course if you are new to both FP and Scala.

I liked this course, have been a great experience..

I would like that the Sound of Videos could be improved

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!!

A bit dry at times but overall a comprehensive introduction to functional programming in Scala.

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

Need more practice walk through exercise. Need more example and steps. Overall really good.

Very good introduction to Scala. Elegant programming shown by Mr. Odersky was fun to watch!

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

Great introductory course for those starting a journey in Functional Programming or Scala

Challenging course if you are joining without any past formal education on CS concepts

very good course. Teached the basics of scala and allows for more courses to be taken
