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.

Decent course, except in the last week it felt a bit stitched together from parts of a previous course and a new one. The jump in flow seemed abrupt and the relevance of some of the contents (regarding Future's) was not clear.
by Sebastián S C•
I found this course thanks to Lightbend but I was sad to realice that a lot of content from the previous course has been took down. Actors, RxScala or Akka streams are missing and where in some sort present before.
by James T•
Much of the lecture material seemed very chopped-up from previous courses and did not flow well at all. In a couple of cases the assignment had very little relationship with the course material from the same week.
by Lukasz S•
Videos from previuos version of the course Reactive programming in Scala makes this course worse prepared. I had impression that it was made rushed from shredded pieces. Assignements are easier than previous
by Juan S P R•
The lab for the third week was unrelated to the material, and the fourth week is a bunch of videos from the previous course of reactive programming in Scala. Nothing like the first course of Scala
by Viktor K•
Too much of the content is already contained in the courses "Functional Programming Principles in Scala" and "Principles of Reactive Programming". Would be nice to have some new assignments.
by Carlos M d C T•
The quality of the explanations is inferior to the first course.
But I feel I could pass the Assignments without mastery of the topics.
However, would take this course again.
by Evgenii S•
Course is not well formed.
I received full grade for second assignment doing nothing.
It will be great if you attach lectures from Reactive Programming at least as optional
by Viton V•
On the positive side: The content was very interesting.
On the negative side: The course was not particularly well structured. The last week was quite difficult to follow.
by Ivan K•
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 Nicolás 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.
