Very good introduction to Scala and functional programming. Some of the exercises are quite challenging and i can imagine that the lectures would be difficult for someone who has never done functional programming before. I think it would be better that when a new concept is explained, it should be explained with a simple example. That way, the learner can focus on learning the new concept in isolation. Sometimes, a new concept is introduced in the context of a difficult or mathematical problem. This means that the learner needs to understand the problem domain as well as the new concept. This is the case in the exercises and the lectures.

A different way of thinking.

I'm a java developer and I'm interested on Big Data projects because of that I decided to learn a functional language, I choose scala because it runs on the JVM, because there is plenty of info about, but the main reason was because I found this awesome course given by the creator of the language. The course is easy to understand and it invites you to do additional research thru the recommended material, the book "Structure and interpretation of computer programs" helped me a lot. The exercises from week 4 and 6 are tough, and I like that, but definitely additional guidance would be of great help.

Very good course, for anyone who want to learn scala!
