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.

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.
von Dani G•
Great Course to be familiar with the functional programming principles. Missing a little bit more solved examples and some more fundamental materail
von Jose C C F•
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.
von Philipp J•
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

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!
von Christian B•
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.
von Leo A•
This course gives a very nice introduction to Functional Programming whilst introducing you to the idiosyncrasies of the Scala language.
von ZHANG X•
The course provide a way to see programming differently. The exercices are very difficult. It would be nice to provide more test cases.
von Kenneth M•
A very good beginners course for learning Scala. The lectures are a bit dry but overall a very good course with good assignments.
von Tomasz K•
Good way to learn by doing - assignments extend lectures and give additonal approach to deal with the all programming issues.
Brilliant Course, had lots of fun coding. It was challenging and stimulating. Thanks Prof. Odersky for putting this together.
von William S•
Good starting course, helps to have a little knowledge of Scala or Java already and also a decent understanding of recursion.
von Xiao L•
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...).
von humberto c•
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
von Walid E H•
Cours complet avec beaucoup d'exercices pour la prise en main des principes de programmation fonctionnelle avec Scala

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