I'm still doing the course and may update the review but I thought I'd discuss my current experience. Overall I'd recommend the course. Its a good introduction to Scala, has some interesting coverage of functional programming, and is generally quite enjoyable. My only gripe is it doesn't have as much in depth coverage of functional programming as I'd have liked. The assignments do force you to think of how to decompose, analyse, visualise and test functional solutions but there isn't actually much coverage of those aspects in the videos. This seemed to be a common complain in the forums too so I don't think it was just me. Other than that though its great.

Excellent course that is perfect accompaniment to their excellent book, you will need to know some Java and I'd recommend use of eclipse not but they give you great libraries and with the help of the discussion forums it should be easy to follow along.

Great course which provides either a good introduction or refresher, I really don't have anything negative to say about it.

Absolutely superb course, the professor is clearly highly passionate about the topic and does a great job of explaining all the content. One thing I'd recommend is if you aren't too hot on probability then do learn that before the course, it is actually quite important.
