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.

The assignment could be optimized and avoid to be more academic since it may make student lost focus and spend too much time on the question itself rather than the parallel programming

創建者 Rodrigo D


Its a very good course! perhaps the in the practice code, before jumping into the problems they can provide a couple of simple examples/questions such that the main ideas are learnt.

創建者 Du L


Very challenging course, the assignments are more about practising using parallel programming, would be better to design an assignment to implement the parallel programming.

創建者 Gregory E


For this course you should have Advanced English level. Cause sentesce construction is so difficult and words so unusual that i had to some times google what i have to do.

創建者 Benoit P D


Very good course overall on the basics of parallel programming in scala. Would have been nice to talk a bit more on the low level setup (parallel and task construct code).

創建者 Tim G


Really good course covering some of the fundamentals of parallel programming, though for me I was hoping it would go into some of the Scala specifics a little more

創建者 Erkin U


Assignments are focused on problem-solving rather than the importance of parallelism, missing the point of the lecture. It is a Scala course, so it is always fun!

創建者 Rahul W


Good course but scala understanding is required for this course. So please register for prior course in the certification task to easily complete this course.

創建者 Роман В


Assignments are too easy compared to 2 previous courses. I've been asked lot less than been given. And did not grasp everything in the lectures at the end.

創建者 Solodovnikov G


Good explanations, relevant assignments.

But too small, too little graded assignments as for subject. Be better if the assignments has less starter code.

創建者 Zhenduo D


I can be further improved if the class can touch on design patterns using Future and Actor, in addition to the data structure oriented materials.

創建者 Enrique G R


Time to complete exercises might not be completely assessed. Some lectures seem to technical without any correspondence with real problems.

創建者 Pascal A


Really a great course but with a heavy work for the duration. If others courses are followed in parallel, there's no time to loose

創建者 Romain G


Very good course. Conc-list was brilliant.

Automated correction tool could do with more verbosity on failed test cases.

創建者 Steven T


Presentations were presented well and the assignments were interestingly varied but quite challenging for the newbie.

創建者 Alan A


Interesting course but math part is too academic and boring. It'll be more useful if focused only in real use cases.

創建者 Ville M


After a rather confusing and dissatisfying first week, the course picked up pace nicely in the latter weeks.

創建者 joshua


Overall the course was really good. I think the first 2 courses explained things a little bit better though.

創建者 Carlos C B


The course is good but is not focused on scala features. It is more generic parallel programming approach.

創建者 Adianto W


Insightful, though I am not sure if in non R&D/Academia settings the knowledge here can easily be applied.

創建者 Marc K


The homework assignments are a bit hard, they require a lot of concentration time to make some progress.

創建者 Shuo Z


Good course. The assignments should focus on the parallel programming itself instead of language stuff.

創建者 Nikola P


Very interesting course, I would recommend. I always wanted to learn about Scala parallel collections.

創建者 Chet W


Good class but sometimes the exercises seemed unnecessarily complicated for explaining the concepts.

創建者 Hong C


Lectures are very informative. I like all four assignments. They are well-designed and interesting.
