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.
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.

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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