I learned a lot about parallel processing algorithms, way more than I expected. Even after spending over 10 years programming parallel data processing.

I can be further improved if the class can touch on design patterns using Future and Actor, in addition to the data structure oriented materials.

very good, but need to focus a little bit on how to create tasks and threads

This is a good course that has some really interesting assignments. The lectures are understandable and the topics are explained a bit nicer than a lot of theory in the other Scala courses from Martin Odersky, who conveys knowledge in a more "textbook" form. I am, however, taking one star out for the last assignment which was rather muddy in terms of explanation, long and not easy to debug due to it's size and parallel aspects. I felt way more positive about all other assignments on this course.
