In this course you will learn how to apply the functional programming style in the design of larger Scala applications. You'll get to know important new functional programming concepts, from lazy evaluation to structuring your libraries using monads. We'll work on larger and more involved examples, from state space exploration to random testing to discrete circuit simulators. You’ll also learn some best practices on how to write good Scala code in the real world. Finally, you will learn how to leverage the ability of the compiler to infer values from types.

TOP REVIEWS FROM FUNCTIONAL PROGRAM DESIGN IN SCALA
Great course. seems like some things that were referred to during some of the lectures were missing and kinda left you waiting for more. Hoping they will be completed in future courses.
It is one of the best courses and one of the most informing of all of them. If you want to learn a new programming language paradigm, like functional, this course is perfect for you.
Awesome course. All assignments except the last one are super difficult.
Maybe the assignments could be made a little simpler by providing some more hints.
Overall very good and somehow challenging course, however week 4 is a bit convoluted (E. Meijer referring to the nonexisting (in this edition of the course) previous video etc.)
