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!

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

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.

This course gives a very nice introduction to Functional Programming whilst introducing you to the idiosyncrasies of the Scala language.

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

A very good beginners course for learning Scala. The lectures are a bit dry but overall a very good course with good assignments.

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.

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

I really enjoyed the videos and the assignments. I wish there were more simple exercises for week 5 as an assignment

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

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.

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.
