With every smartphone and computer now boasting multiple processors, the use of functional ideas to facilitate parallel programming is becoming increasingly widespread. In this course, you'll learn the fundamentals of parallel programming, from task parallelism to data parallelism. In particular, you'll see how many familiar ideas from functional programming map perfectly to to the data parallel paradigm. We'll start the nuts and bolts how to effectively parallelize familiar collections operations, and we'll build up to parallel collections, a production-ready data parallel collections library available in the Scala standard library. Throughout, we'll apply these concepts through several hands-on examples that analyze real-world data, such as popular algorithms like k-means clustering. Learning Outcomes. By the end of this course you will be able to: - reason about task and data parallel programs, - express common algorithms in a functional style and solve them in parallel, - competently microbenchmark parallel code, - write programs that effectively use parallel collections to achieve performance Recommended background: You should have at least one year programming experience. Proficiency with Java or C# is ideal, but experience with other languages such as C/C++, Python, Javascript or Ruby is also sufficient. You should have some familiarity using the command line. This course is intended to be taken after Functional Program Design in Scala:




The course is fairly advanced and you would need to review the materials many times to understand the concept. The assignments are definitely fun and not as straightforward as other courses.



Superb study material. Learnt a lot during this course. I am not much into mathematical stuff, but got a hang of how to break problems and improve efficiency through parallelism.

Very good introductory theoretical foundation for parallell algorithms, and background for

the Big Data Analysis with Scala and Spark course.

創建者 张诺舟


very good course. It will be better if more reading material could be offered. The content in the lecture is a little bit hard to understand.

創建者 Michael D


I learned a lot about improving algorithms to run in a parallelized manner which is more efficient when having more than one cpu/computers

創建者 Rohan V


More emphasis on Parallel Data Structures is needed, course is relatively simple as compared to previous courses from same specialisation

創建者 Yin J X


Wish Mr. Odersky would've taught this course as well but it quickly lived up to my expectations. I really enjoyed doing the assignments.

創建者 Christoph K


Very interesting material, especially the prefix sum algorithms about, how to transform a sequential problem into a parallel problem.

創建者 Oleg O


Good course, though there is sometimes too much mathematics, what distracts from the purpose to learn parallel paradigm in Scala.

創建者 Tib O


Excellent course, pretty challenging difficulty. Thanks to the instructors for putting together some very interesting material.

創建者 Josue G T I


Very interesting, with difficult examples and task. Spent a lot of time analyzing weekly assignments but it was totally worth.

創建者 Roman A


It's an interesting and useful course, but I was surprised it's not contain any information about Futures and Promises.

創建者 Tao W


This course is not simple, and the second assignment is hard. But I made it through, and happy with the achievement.

創建者 Bruno F


Great course -- I learned a lot.

Parts of it were very heavy too, and not all of the lecture material was examined.

創建者 Kanchi U


Concepts are nicely explained and the exercises are interesting and there is enough information to complete them.

創建者 crow f


The material in the course is not complete, but it's perfect as introductory course in parallel programming.

創建者 Mehdi


Excellent course !!! A must take in my opinion for a better and deep understanding of parallel programming.

創建者 Prashant P


This is a great course that helps you develop thinking in terms of parallel implementation of the problems.

創建者 Fernando R


The course provides a deep dive into Parallel Programming with Scala, and is well worth the time invested.

創建者 Benji T


The content of the course is great, will review this course again as i think i left out some concepts.

創建者 Alexander Z Q


Course with excellent content, methodology and teacher. It was an extraordinary learning experience

創建者 Seongsan K


I really loved how well organized the course was and how well the professors explain the concepts.

創建者 Patrick M


Quite interesting but sometimes I would have spent some minutes more to explain some core concept.

創建者 Jiby N


Great Course. The details are quite the right amount, but more exercise could have been included.

創建者 Paulo R d O C


Hard course, but gives good insights about the challenges and solutions for parallel programming.

創建者 Srdjan K


Pro: A very good course for those who are already experienced in Scala

Con: Only 4 weeks long :)

創建者 Artur R


This is one of the most dense and solid courses on Coursera and I really enjoyed tackling it
