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.

Last (4th week) is awfully designed, includes a lot of "scratch the surface" material, very bad explanations of futures and background. With authors redesigned 4th week.
by Pavel O•
Some stuff was weird, like the quickcheck task, too much weird syntax, hard to understand what's going on, especially because there was no explanation for binomial heap
by Oleg O•
Weird mix of disorganized materials. Manner of teaching of Erik Meijer is really annoying. Course "Functional Programming Principles in Scala" was much better
by Pascal S•
Learned quite a bit, but course was not as good as the first course of the specialization.
Especially the presentations in week 4 are rather messy.
by David P•
Thoroughly enjoyed the lectures by M. Odersky! Unfortunately the lectures on Futures seemed a bit disconnected from the rest of the material...
by Santiago S L•
Course is fine from an "standard" industry standpoint. However, I would have loved more monads and harder concepts related to category theory.
by Fernando G•
Interesting, but a little bit too easy and shallow.
The material was reused from other courses without making it all fit together well.
by Nathan L•
Was quite good but getting less and less useful, too abstract, lacking detail. Examples too academic, needs to be more practical.
by Alfonso M F•
Week 3 assigment had little relationship with the material presented in the course. Week 4 needs quite a lot of polish...
by Yuan L•
The last week has materials that nothing related to assignment, and it jumps a bit fast where i have no clue at all
by Nicolas C•
Most of the content was included in Functional Programming in Scala and Reactive Programming Principles in Scala.
by Bidhya N S•
The course is not structured well. Also concepts like monads and functors are not covered in detailed way.
by David S•
Meh. Very basic intro; not the more advanced class I anticipated, based on the first in the sequence.
by Damien F•
The videos were a bit confusing and gave me the impression that it was a patchwork from old lectures.
by Peter H•
Course material seems to be combined from two old courses, and some materials are not well prepared.
by Roger L•
The examples & exercises were too academic. Just glad to complete it. Found it extremely dull.
by Mayeul M•
Not as useful as the first course. The part on the futures is not really understandable.
by yassine a•
not bad , but very short and not huge plus value compared to first course
by Gabriele A•
Good course but not much coherence between lessons and exercises.
by mostafa n•
nice course but i was expecting more about actors and futures
by Andrew Z•
The main difficulty of the task does not apply to the course
by Bert H•
Course material looked sometimes recycled and unstructered
by Chang F•
Not as good as the first one, esp near the end.
by Sergey S•
progfun and reactive programming was better
by Kuba F•
Worse than Scala Principles - too chaotic.
