Über den Kurs

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, Tumblr 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. 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 programming projects as homework assignments. Recommended background: You should have at least one year 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....

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!

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.

Course is excellent , I Which is no surprise given the fact that Martin Odersky is one of the original developers of the Scala language. The assignments are really good, specially Huffman coding and Anagram combinatorial search !

This course is super helpful to my understanding of functional programming as well as Scala language. It taught me to construct the solution in a recursive way and build up the answers in a natural inductive way. Very good course!

The explanations are all very clear. Mr Odersky does a great job at teaching Scala. Changing to the functional paradigm is already affecting my Python and Javascript coding skills. I feel confident that my code quality improved.

this course was fantastic, i couldn't stop watching and doing excercises until i reached this page. will surely join its continuation (hahaha he said "continuation"!). already recommended it to my colleagues. hugs and kisses, d.

This was a great introductory course. Coming from a Java background it really helps you get your head around functional programming and thinking more about what you want to achieve and not how you do it using control structures.

A thorough introduction to the functional programming parts of Scala, with new topics introduced in a sensible order, justifications and explanations provided where expected, and assignments at an appropriate challenge level.

Awesome course from the creator of the language !

Its not just a starting point for Scala & functional programming but also to OOPS design.

Must DO course for developers !!

Thanks a lot for providing such a valuable knowledge !!

I recommend this course for everyone who wants to learn functional programming. The course is well taught and doesn't matter if you're a new to programming or an experienced developer, you will learn a lot of things for sure.

Always follow the inventor of the language to get the juice out of book or lecture. Great course. Take time to pick up functional programming. Must DO assignments to fully understand. Use your pen to write down the induction.

Amazing, changed my mindset and improved my programming skills with another approach totally different. The lectures are clear and easy to follow. I'd miss a better test suite with each exercise, but despite that is amazing.

The course gave an excellent exposure to the really core aspects of functional programming. The assignments were very interesting and challenging. The pace and clarity of delivery was very conducive to learning this subject.

A lot of new information (Pattern Matching, Variance, Call-by-value & Call-by-name strategies) that was presented in structural and stimulating way. Also challenging and exciting assignments that always keep you in a loop.

A great insight into both functional programming as well as Scala by the man himself. Don't be fooled though and don't take this course lightly as you have to put serious effort in it -- but you'll be rewarded accordingly.

Excellent introduction to Functional programming. If you're new to this paradigm, Scala is the perfect language to start, because combines OOP and Functional programming, making the learning process scalable and friendly.

I got a basic understanding of Scala and the intention of the founder, and I also got application example through not easy assignment. I am not a expert even I closed this course, but I am better than before

Great course, but I think it's a bit difficult to put your attention on functional programming itself when there are so many math examples and not trivial algorythms. Anyway, I enjoyed it and looking forward the next one

The course is worth learning. It is interesting and challenging. Even though I needed more time than one session to complete the course because of some of the assignments, I don't think that they should be made easier.

I really enjoyed the course, even though some of the concepts were quite familiar as a CS graduate student. Prof Martin Ordesky goes to fine details, which make the Scala big picture much clearer.

Definitely recommended.

This is an amazing course given by one of Scala's authors. So many new concepts for those coming from Object oriented programming. It is a new world where some applications can be coded in a few lines of pure functions.

It is "the best course" to start understanding functional programming and get ur feet wet with scala.I really loved the way in which concepts have been explained , it has really helped in writing code in functional way.

Great Start in functional programming. It tackles a lot of the main concepts of functional programming. The way I was taught Scala in this course showed me how to leverage both FP and OOP to solve problems efficiently.

Really great course. Martin explains the material with passion and in detail. Learning functional programming was a lot of fun, because it enforces you to adjust your approach based on experienced with other languages.

Excellent course. I always wanted to know more about functional programming and this was an awesome introduction. All of the examples are very well chosen. I found the assignments to be challenging but I enjoyed it.

An amazingly deep dive for an intro course: covers generics, pattern matching, immutable data structures in lectures. Week 3 had some issues with the grader robot and exponential run times if you wrote some bad code.

Прошел курс со 2 попытки. Если вы пришли сюда за знаниям скалы - вы их особо не получите.

Курс больше о ФП. Задачки для домашней работы довольно сложные явно требуют 5-6 часов работы для людей у которых нет опыта в ФП
