Monday 23 May 2016

We’re very happy to announce that the first 3 out of 4 courses in our Scala specialization have launched on Coursera! The courses available today include:

  • Functional Programming Principles in Scala: discover the elements of the functional programming style and learn how to apply them usefully in your daily programming tasks.
  • Functional Program Design in Scala: learn how to apply the functional programming style in the design of larger applications.
  • Parallel Programming: learn the fundamentals of parallel programming, from task parallelism to data parallelism.

As in the past, all courses feature the much-loved automatic grading of programming assignments!

The final course in the pipeline is Big Data Analysis with Scala and Spark, which we’re hoping will follow in a couple of months along with the Scala capstone project – a ~4 week long project designed to push you to build a larger, more challenging Scala application.

All courses are available both for free and as part of the Scala specialization, which is a verified mini-degree from Coursera.
