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.

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!

I am a beginner in Functional Programming and Scala. It was difficult for me to understand the concepts on my own in the organisation project work. This course by the creator, Martin Odersky, has really helped me understand the basics of Functional programming and Scala in detail. I have thoroughly enjoyed the amazing exercises that have been created with deep thinking. IT has helped me to hone the skills and apply them in real project. Given proper time and effort one can finish this course in 1 month.

A bit on the easy side, but otherwise a great FP 101 course

A great start. Challenging while informative. The last assignment in the last week really made me think about my approach from a functional programming perspective rather than a procedural approach. It also really made me focus on how to ensure that the types of responses going into a list are of the most compatible narrowest type needed for the task i'm performing. I'm excited to sink my teeth into the next class.

I completed this course in a single day (about 8 hours) having substantial experience as java programmer. However I feel that if course is to teach Scala, it should not be so heavy on all functional programming tricks (which in the given examples and assignments are often too artificial, inefficient and awkward). Or if the course is to teach functional programming, probably Scala is not the most user-friendly choice. Also as a developer I feel displeased with assignments stub code poorly formatted with indentation bORken both in classes and functions.

Amazing. Very useful how it started off throwing you into the deep end with recursion, to help jar your mind, opening it to functional.... for those of us who coded imperative for many years

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.

The star of this course is the programming assignments which are well-crafted and challenging. Excellent teaching and introduction to Scala!
