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!

As expected Martin is awesome in explaining principle of functional programming. I have started reading the book as well to make sure I keep up with the knowledge which I have gained from this course.

I really appreciated this course and found it very helpful in understanding functional programming. It's well structured and it will bring you to deal with problems of increasing complexity. Thanks so much to Prof. Odersky and Coursera.

Very brief and still concise presentation of both functional programming and Scala syntax and features. For my first course of functional programming, I think it gave me basic knowledge and skills to use functional programming features.

The assignments are really challenging. Sometimes if can't complete the assignment, it can be a bit frustrating but if you can complete the assignment, it's tremendously rewarding! The week3 assignment can be improved for more clarity.

Very interesting course. The assignments might be hard and if you're coming from imperative programming. I love week 2 assignment the most because the way of implementation a set without store any elements but functions is so elegant.

This is one of the best online courses I have ever taken.
The course material is presented clearly and thoroughly.
The course assignments are challenging and interesting. They reinforce the presented material well.
Overall, great course.

Excellent course. The material covers a range of functional programming topics and provides a good introduction to the scala programming language. I highly recommend the course for anyone interested in functional programming or scala.

The best introduction to functional programming and Scala by its creator! At first I wandered why so much attention was given to lists and implementing some operations on them but later it became clear and paid for itself! Thank you!

Course is excellent , I Which is no surprise given the fact that Martin Odersky is one of the original developers of the Scala language. The assignments are really good, specially Huffman coding and Anagram combinatorial search !

This course is super helpful to my understanding of functional programming as well as Scala language. It taught me to construct the solution in a recursive way and build up the answers in a natural inductive way. Very good course!

this course was fantastic, i couldn't stop watching and doing excercises until i reached this page. will surely join its continuation (hahaha he said "continuation"!). already recommended it to my colleagues. hugs and kisses, d.

This was a great introductory course. Coming from a Java background it really helps you get your head around functional programming and thinking more about what you want to achieve and not how you do it using control structures.

A thorough introduction to the functional programming parts of Scala, with new topics introduced in a sensible order, justifications and explanations provided where expected, and assignments at an appropriate challenge level.

Awesome course from the creator of the language !
Its not just a starting point for Scala & functional programming but also to OOPS design.
Must DO course for developers !!
Thanks a lot for providing such a valuable knowledge !!

I recommend this course for everyone who wants to learn functional programming. The course is well taught and doesn't matter if you're a new to programming or an experienced developer, you will learn a lot of things for sure.

Always follow the inventor of the language to get the juice out of book or lecture. Great course. Take time to pick up functional programming. Must DO assignments to fully understand. Use your pen to write down the induction.

Amazing, changed my mindset and improved my programming skills with another approach totally different. The lectures are clear and easy to follow. I'd miss a better test suite with each exercise, but despite that is amazing.

The course gave an excellent exposure to the really core aspects of functional programming. The assignments were very interesting and challenging. The pace and clarity of delivery was very conducive to learning this subject.

A lot of new information (Pattern Matching, Variance, Call-by-value & Call-by-name strategies) that was presented in structural and stimulating way. Also challenging and exciting assignments that always keep you in a loop.

A great insight into both functional programming as well as Scala by the man himself. Don't be fooled though and don't take this course lightly as you have to put serious effort in it -- but you'll be rewarded accordingly.

Excellent introduction to Functional programming. If you're new to this paradigm, Scala is the perfect language to start, because combines OOP and Functional programming, making the learning process scalable and friendly.

I got a basic understanding of Scala and the intention of the founder, and I also got application example through not easy assignment. I am not a expert even I closed this course, but I am better than before

Great course, but I think it's a bit difficult to put your attention on functional programming itself when there are so many math examples and not trivial algorythms. Anyway, I enjoyed it and looking forward the next one

The course is worth learning. It is interesting and challenging. Even though I needed more time than one session to complete the course because of some of the assignments, I don't think that they should be made easier.

I really enjoyed the course, even though some of the concepts were quite familiar as a CS graduate student. Prof Martin Ordesky goes to fine details, which make the Scala big picture much clearer.
