À propos du cours

With every smartphone and computer now boasting multiple processors, the use of functional ideas to facilitate parallel programming is becoming increasingly widespread. In this course, you'll learn the fundamentals of parallel programming, from task parallelism to data parallelism. In particular, you'll see how many familiar ideas from functional programming map perfectly to to the data parallel paradigm. We'll start the nuts and bolts how to effectively parallelize familiar collections operations, and we'll build up to parallel collections, a production-ready data parallel collections library available in the Scala standard library. Throughout, we'll apply these concepts through several hands-on examples that analyze real-world data, such as popular algorithms like k-means clustering. Learning Outcomes. By the end of this course you will be able to: - reason about task and data parallel programs, - express common algorithms in a functional style and solve them in parallel, - competently microbenchmark parallel code, - write programs that effectively use parallel collections to achieve performance Recommended background: You should have at least one year programming experience. Proficiency with Java or C# is ideal, but experience with other languages such as C/C++, Python, Javascript or Ruby is also sufficient. You should have some familiarity using the command line. This course is intended to be taken after Functional Program Design in Scala:

The course is fairly advanced and you would need to review the materials many times to understand the concept. The assignments are definitely fun and not as straightforward as other courses.

Superb study material. Learnt a lot during this course. I am not much into mathematical stuff, but got a hang of how to break problems and improve efficiency through parallelism.

Good topics and assignments. Wasn't as impressed by the course as the ones taught by Odersky.

It would be great to add some popular frameworks and some basics of reactive programming

just one point to improve: some lib in Scala are not be told to install and use

Not as good as the first two courses from the specialization, but still good

it would be great to have a few more pointers how to debug code in parallel

Interesting, but a lot of theory. The task of 4 weeks is very difficult.

Not bad, but I was hoping for more in-depth course. Worth taking though.

What a difficult course it is!

Nevertheless, it was very helpful.

Very well delivered course, more examples are needed though.

good in general, theory part on complexity is too tedious

Needs to be updated for more modern versions of Scala.
