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:




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.


Functional Program Design in Scala: 351 - 375 / 512 レビュー

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

by Ricardo C


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

by Pedro C P P


A little less content than the first course.

Also the videos and materials of the second professor are way worst than the first one.

by Glendon K


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

by Pravina


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

by Ken C


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

by Roberto O


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

by Stefan M


T​he course itself is really good. But no response by the staff to any question in the discussion forums is very poor.

by Carlos R


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

by Jacek K


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

by Joaquín D R


Too short, In my opinion i would spend more time on future and async.

I dont like too much, when the teacher changes..

by Levi K


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

by Török E


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

by Luca A


Good material, but the course is way less structured than the first one and the lectures are not well connected.

by Alejandro O A


Too much level sometimes. I feel like there should be more classes and details in the first and second courses.

by Lestar C


The FRP part was too short. The earlier version were much longer and contained some introduction about RxScala.

by Santiago A


The course is great. I put 4 stars because week 4 is very hard to follow up and may take more than one week.

by Du L


Very challenging course, would be better to expand this course into a more detailed and slower paced version

by Lawrence A


This course has been very good, and i will recommend it to anyone who wants to learn functional programming.

by David N


Great course! Lacked the same polish as the previous course though. Week3 assignment had grading issues.

by Yuan Y


material for first two weeks are good. third and fourth are not so good. assignment is a bit too simple

by Jaseer A


Week 4 material was jumbled and very hard to follow. Not upto the usual standard in the course so far

by Dima P


A great continuation on Scala and functional programming, I wish the exercises were more challenging.

by Albert F


Videos are great, however it would be good to update the content since videos are from >6 years ago.

by Daniel D


Thanks EPFL good course and has certainly broaden my awareness of the possibilities of using Scala.
