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.

nice course but i was expecting more about actors and futures

The main difficulty of the task does not apply to the course

Course material looked sometimes recycled and unstructered

A bit of confusion about the assignment instruction.
by Chang F•
Not as good as the first one, esp near the end.

progfun and reactive programming was better
by Kuba F•
Worse than Scala Principles - too chaotic.

The old version was more interesting.

The first week is simply useless :(

Asigments are too easy to implement
I was expecting more from it.

For the content of last 3 weeks, I struggled through some of them, I found some of them quite irrelevant, therefore I had to catch a lot of ideas from all over the internet, I thought it was just me until I saw other reviews about the course, obviously, this version of the course is different from the original one, some content was removed, glued, or out of order.
Subjects of exams are really cool but they are already written at 80~90%, I would prefer to have to do things from scratch even if the subject is less interesting. A part from that, there no connecting thread during the course, each weeks is about something new and we don't really use stuff from the previous week. Globally, it's hard to retain the new knowledge...

As other reviews have indicated, this course is a mish-mash and a big disappointment after the 5* progfun1 course.

The assignment did not sever the purpose to enhance what had been taught in the videos.

This module as the one before (for which Coursera doesn't allow me to leave a review) is really "academic" like. That really means a lot of notion with no practical examples. Even the first module wasn't really explaining scala, it already starts like you are supposed to know it already. While in the description it was depicted as a beginers-like course. For instance, the lectures talk about the argument "A" and then the assignment is about "Z^2". One of the worst thing about the lectures is that you spend 20 minutes trying to understand a really complicated notion and then in the next minute he implements the same concept with less line of codes and also more optimised, so you have wasted all that time trying to understand an obsolete technique, why you didn't show me the optimised way immediately?! Lectures of 15 minutes that could be resumed with an internet search of 3 minutes. Definitely a waste of money, I completed the first one hoping to understand more in this one but what I got was just a huge waste of time and money.

Курс значительно слабее первого, после 2 недели начинается хаотичная нарезка лекция.
