スイス連邦工科大学ローザンヌ校(École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) による Functional Program Design in Scala の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



In this course you will learn how to apply the functional programming style in the design of larger Scala applications. You'll get to know important new functional programming concepts, from lazy evaluation to structuring your libraries using monads. We'll work on larger and more involved examples, from state space exploration to random testing to discrete circuit simulators. You’ll also learn some best practices on how to write good Scala code in the real world. Finally, you will learn how to leverage the ability of the compiler to infer values from types. Several parts of this course deal with the question how functional programming interacts with mutable state. We will explore the consequences of combining functions and state. We will also look at purely functional alternatives to mutable state, using infinite data structures or functional reactive programming. Recommended background: You should have at least one year programming experience. Proficiency with Java or C# is ideal, but experience with other languages such as C/C++, Python, Javascript or Ruby is also sufficient. You should have some familiarity with using the command line. This course is intended to be taken after Functional Programming Principles in Scala:

Great course. Nice and to the point. I wish there were a course dedicated to Scala web stack (ScalaJs,React,etc. ...)

by Youwei Z


a more advanced class but remains friendly to beginners. i can work on 3 courses at the same time without much burden

by Zhehui Z


Much harder than the first course of this specialization. Many important functional programming concepts introduced.

by Patrick L


I'e been using Scala at work for more than a year, but still M Odersky and E Meijer brought me a lot in this course

by Сергей А П


Another course by Martin Odersky about Scala programming which is extremely useful and interesting. Thanks a lot.

by Akshay A


Last two weeks are definitely confusing, since the staff seems to have rearranged and removed some ofthe content.

by Fernando R


Great course. The material is stimulating, challenging, and very useful to learn functional programming in Scala.

Really adds value to the previous course, filling in the blanks on how you might apply it to larger applications.

by Juliusz G


Three fun, easy & very informative programming assignments on streams, property testing and reactive programming

by Tin H K


A great continuation course to learn functional programming in Scala. Thank you very much Professor Odersky!

by Gregory M


Clear, though I was already intermediate in scala, I learnt some new functional programming techniques here

by Tomasz N


In week 4 sudden change of teacher and topic from reactive programming principles to Futures is confusing.

by Ignacio G S


Excellent course from the best professionals in the world. The Futures content should be tested as well.

by Krishnan C


This class was really useful for helping me to understand streams and functional reactive programming!

by Jędrzej B


One of the best courses I've encountered. Nice examples, clear explanations, interesting assignments.



A very intricate and well designed course. I especially liked the assignments and programming labs!!!

by vladimir


Decent course with interesting assignments. The last part was slightly disjointed, but still useful.



It's was an awesome and amazing journey! Like in my childhood on interschool programmers contests

by Ankur S


Very Good. Some parts can be provided with some material to refer . Example reactive programming.

by Ro V


I learned optimal and safe methodologies to manipulate data when it is infinite, mutable or async

by Wong J P


Good material, challenging stuff. Took me a few reads and revisits to grasp the concepts properly

by CAI X


The assignment is pretty hard actually. Thought the concept is relatively easy to understand.

by Yannick S


really good lessions, clean and well structured - but you need intermediate++ level to enjoy!

by Seleznev A


Quite complicated but helpful the part of specialization. There are lots of confused tasks.

by Łukasz W


Very clear lectures. Interesting and demanding programming tasks. I recommend this course.
