I'm just a beginner for CS or SE classes, and find this course really concise and challenging. It opens a door for me to get deeper into programming language. No wonder it got so high average score.
Very interesting course! Superb teaching and homework assignments. If you are interested in functional programming or in programming languages in general, this should be one of the must take MOOCs

A great introduction to core concepts and terminology of functional programming for such a relatively short course. I am definitely going to take parts B and C.

It is a very challenging course and great learning experience. One would be very clear on functional programming style and concepts after completing this course.

I really enjoyed this course, the way it compared different types of programming languages helped me to understand the similarities that all languages share.
创建者 Zachary R•
Great introduction to functional programming, especially for folks with an OOP background. Challenging and rewarding. I am looking forward to parts B and C!

Outstanding course. Actually, it's valuable even for experienced programmers. The ideas presented in course could be used in other - mainstream languages.

I really enjoyed taking this course. It was quite taxing but I loved the way Dan Grossman presented the concepts in a very intuitive and didactic manner.

Great course! HW
Great course! The HWs were more challenging than I expected but Dan's lectures are very clear and the concepts are explained very well.

Great Course. Unlike other MOOC courses, it provides sufficent practices which helps me to understand the content a lot. Looking forward to take part B
Wonderful course. Highly recommend for anyone who hasn't made any study of programming languages before, whether you are a student or professional.

The course is actually very useful and well structured. Don't be scared by the use of a programming language (Standard ML) that might seem obscure.
创建者 Tejas P B•
Exceptional experience, learnt a lot! Will recommend whole heartedly to others. I am onto part B now! Excited to see how racket contrasts with ML.

Excellent course to further hone your programming skills and computational thinking - I will forever see programming languages in a new light.
创建者 Alexei B•
excellent, i couldn`t take it few years ago - due to my bad english, today i really enjoy it.
Many things that seemed difficult for me are not.

Great course for whoever is interested in understanding more about how programming languages works (statically typed in part A of the course)
创建者 Tang H T•
Very good instructor, challenging but doable homework for week 3 and 4. Exam is too easy though. I would like the exam to be more difficult.
创建者 Ruud W•
Excellent course. Learn important functional programming concepts, using SML. Very good teacher with excellent videos and written material.
创建者 Paul G•
Great course. Lectures are clear and homework really helps understand the abstract concepts. Thank you for making this available for free!

such a clear introduction to Functional Programing. My fear of 'academic functional style' is totally gone, and really like recursion now.

Instructor is clear and interesting. Course material builds in a way that helps you learn it. Great class, thanks for making it online.

Great course, if you want to learn the foundations of functional programming in a purely functional language this is the course for you!
