Über den Kurs

In this course you will learn how to apply the functional programming style in the design of larger applications. You'll get to know important new functional programming concepts, from lazy evaluation to structuring your libraries using monads. We'll work on larger and more involved examples, from state space exploration to random testing to discrete circuit simulators. You’ll also learn some best practices on how to write good Scala code in the real world. Several parts of this course deal with the question how functional programming interacts with mutable state. We will explore the consequences of combining functions and state. We will also look at purely functional alternatives to mutable state, using infinite data structures or functional reactive programming. Learning Outcomes. By the end of this course you will be able to: - recognize and apply design principles of functional programs, - design functional libraries and their APIs, - competently combine functions and state in one program, - understand reasoning techniques for programs that combine functions and state, - write simple functional reactive applications. 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. This course is intended to be taken after Functional Programming Principles in Scala:

This is a university degree course which takes enormous effort to complete. But still its beond the programming course range giving you whats not possible to google or learn practical way. Thanks!

Thank you for this exciting course! I did the FP in Scala course a few years ago and decided to do the full certification now. I am looking forward to the next courses in the specialisation.

This course continues where Part 1 left off and covers some of the advanced concepts of FP - especially the dreaded Monads.

Great concepts are introduced in the course. It is very educational to get through. I like the Signal Var portion the best.

Great course. The lecture about actors that were mentioned in the beginning of week 4 would have been a nice addition.

Challenging, well-presented topics! The course has opened the door to many avenues of study well past the course itself

Functional Reactive Programming (named Signal) is like to able to make every event driven. Thanks for opening my mind

Great course. Nice and to the point. I wish there were a course dedicated to Scala web stack (ScalaJs,React,etc. ...)

I'e been using Scala at work for more than a year, but still M Odersky and E Meijer brought me a lot in this course

Last two weeks are definitely confusing, since the staff seems to have rearranged and removed some ofthe content.

In week 4 sudden change of teacher and topic from reactive programming principles to Futures is confusing.

von Ignacio G S

Excellent course from the best professionals in the world. The Futures content should be tested as well.

I learned optimal and safe methodologies to manipulate data when it is infinite, mutable or async
