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!
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.

Great Course to be familiar with the functional programming principles. Missing a little bit more solved examples and some more fundamental materail
By 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.
By 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
By Xiaoran(Kerry) C•
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!
By 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.
By Leo A•
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.
By 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.
By 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.
By William S•
Good starting course, helps to have a little knowledge of Scala or Java already and also a decent understanding of recursion.
By 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...).
By 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
By Walid E H•
Cours complet avec beaucoup d'exercices pour la prise en main des principes de programmation fonctionnelle avec Scala
By Seongsan K•
I really enjoyed the videos and the assignments. I wish there were more simple exercises for week 5 as an assignment
By John M•
Scala from the source! Great way to get a great introduction to the language and how it is best applied to problems
By SAMAUN I F•
This course really helped me to understand the basics of SCALA. I really enjoyed the challenges of this course.
By Salvatore V•
Great course, I have learned quite a lot. Perhaps not the best course if you are new to both FP and Scala.
By Denilson A C•
I liked this course, have been a great experience..
I would like that the Sound of Videos could be improved
