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.
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.

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.
By 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.

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.

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...).

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

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

This course really helped me to understand the basics of SCALA. I really enjoyed the challenges of this course.
By Denilson A C•
I liked this course, have been a great experience..
I would like that the Sound of Videos could be improved
By Rajiv T S•
The course was a little more involved than I expected, but nevertheless worth the time you invest in it.
By ravi c•
Need a bit more active participation in discussion forum. Other than that very well articulated course.
By Carlos G•
This course is very good, but subject sequence, presentation design and user interaction could improve.
By Edward P•
I took more than 12 hours to finish the assignment for week 4. The estimate (3h) is likely to be wrong.
By Arnoud H•
Bit chaotic at the start. Later some nice functional programming paradigms and scala internals.
By Kelvin G•
Not very (functional programming) beginner friendly, but absolutely worth the pain and effort!!
By Michał P•
A bit dry at times but overall a comprehensive introduction to functional programming in Scala.
By Marco v S•
Covers fundamental theory well and examples and exercises are chosen well to make it practical.
