This is a university degree course which takes enormous effort to complete. But still its beond the programming course range giving you whats not possible to google or learn practical way. Thanks!

Thank you for this exciting course! I did the FP in Scala course a few years ago and decided to do the full certification now. I am looking forward to the next courses in the specialisation.

Saw the application of some functional programming in the course. It was pretty cool, but it was a bit random. I wished we could learn more advance topics of functional programming, such as Category Theory.

Maybe an unfair comparison but I am comparing this with the principles of reactive programming. That had much more contents such as actors, etc. Having said that this is a good course by itself.

The introduction to functional reactive programming is well done. You go from the problem to the solution in a few lectures, and understand positive and negative aspects of the approach.

There were some discontinuity in the last week. The classes appear not to be from the same planning, and the teachers say about classes that are not in the course. It should be revised.

Great course. seems like some things that were referred to during some of the lectures were missing and kinda left you waiting for more. Hoping they will be completed in future courses.

There's a lot to chew on here, and it's well-articulated. Some of the examples are a bit opaque and academic - a little more of a practical, intuitive approach would go a long way.

Overall very good and somehow challenging course, however week 4 is a bit convoluted (E. Meijer referring to the nonexisting (in this edition of the course) previous video etc.)

Less material and practical tasks than in the first Scala course, also some bits about Reactive programming were just taken from other course, but not fully, just partially!

Great class, though the content seemed less coherent than the first course. Topics tended to bounce around without enough deep dives into the more abstract ideas.

Definitely challenging. Sometimes there were some tricky gaps between what the lectures covered and what the assignments were looking for information wise.

The course is much better than the first one - it give much more real hands-one experience.
Would be nice to have: lecture slides, assignments with futures

Good assignments, lectures are a great introduction to Reactive programming but would be nice to have a "where to go from here" type of section/lecture.

Very interesting course. Four stars instead of five because it was less about "Program Design" (from the title) than I would have liked.

Overall learned a lot. Some contents are hard to follow but using supplementary material helped me to discover new things about scala.

Very good course. Sad that it is at the same time as the Functional Programming Principles in Scala, which is clearly a pre-requisite.

A little less content than the first course.
Also the videos and materials of the second professor are way worst than the first one.

The part by Martin Odersky was excellent, the other guy was kind of all over the place and a bit annoying. Good material though.

Apart from the slight disconnect of lectures and assignment in week 3 , I think the rest of the course contents were amazing !

A valuable extension of the ideas in the first course. Helped to continue to build confidence in using Scala and introduced

A few gaps left over from when this course was longer, which took a bit of googling to fill in. Otherwise, a great course.

Sometimes the exercises don't match the content exposed for that week, but in general the course is really interesting

Good course, material needs more coverage in programming assignments. For example monads and futures were not covered.

Too short, In my opinion i would spend more time on future and async.
I dont like too much, when the teacher changes..

This part I liked less than the first. Less substance, and I do not like somebody replacing Mr. Odersky as a lecturer

Basics of lazy streams, monads with for notation, functional reactive programming, and futures with error recovery.
