Brilliant introduction to this esoteric side of programming!

Very interesting and quite challenging at times. It's not a beginner course, you need a solid understanding of recursion (which is all over the place), knowledge of some basic data structures might help too (e.g. binary trees), knowning some Java would help too for obvious reasons (data types, generics etc.).

Some of the concepts are really mind-bending, mostly because a lot of us are not used to this type of programming.

I highly recommend the course and also the companion book (by prof. Odersky) for deeper look into the Scala guts.


Good course of medium diffculty
