Very nice course by Professor Martin Odersky the creator of Scala. Nice topics covered considering it's an introductory course in functionnal programming. So not every aspects of the scala languages are covered (mutable state, concurrent programming, etc.)... The homeworks were not so hard. I'm looking forward for the follow up class : Principles of Reactive Programming.
One of the best course I've ever taken. I wish I had such a professor during my university years. I've got a master degree in general computer science, and I remember having a linear programming course, but it was so boring that today I hardly remember something about it... The video lectures are great focusing more on concepts and explanation than algorithm and implementations. Pascal Van Hentenryck is one of the top researcher in this field and he has some great pedagogy skills. The homeworks are hard, time consuming but very challenging. Once I started a problem, I had to find a solution...
