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.

Wish Mr. Odersky would've taught this course as well but it quickly lived up to my expectations. I really enjoyed doing the assignments.

Very interesting material, especially the prefix sum algorithms about, how to transform a sequential problem into a parallel problem.

Good course, though there is sometimes too much mathematics, what distracts from the purpose to learn parallel paradigm in Scala.

Very interesting, with difficult examples and task. Spent a lot of time analyzing weekly assignments but it was totally worth.

It's an interesting and useful course, but I was surprised it's not contain any information about Futures and Promises.

This course is not simple, and the second assignment is hard. But I made it through, and happy with the achievement.

Great course -- I learned a lot.
Parts of it were very heavy too, and not all of the lecture material was examined.

The material in the course is not complete, but it's perfect as introductory course in parallel programming.
Excellent course !!! A must take in my opinion for a better and deep understanding of parallel programming.

This is a great course that helps you develop thinking in terms of parallel implementation of the problems.

The course provides a deep dive into Parallel Programming with Scala, and is well worth the time invested.

The content of the course is great, will review this course again as i think i left out some concepts.

I really loved how well organized the course was and how well the professors explain the concepts.
创建者 Patrick M•
Quite interesting but sometimes I would have spent some minutes more to explain some core concept.

Great Course. The details are quite the right amount, but more exercise could have been included.

Hard course, but gives good insights about the challenges and solutions for parallel programming.

Pro: A very good course for those who are already experienced in Scala
Con: Only 4 weeks long :)
创建者 Artur R•
This is one of the most dense and solid courses on Coursera and I really enjoyed tackling it
创建者 Alexandr M•
Problems of data structures for parallel computation are explained very well in this course.
创建者 Qiao L•
A very good hands-on course. It's the best parallel programming on line course so far I see.
Perfect! Learning Parallel Programming, I can learn more about Spark and Flink. Thanks

It's hard enought to test your skills in Scala parallel programming, results pay off.

Excellent course with great combination of theory and practical Scala assignments!
