one comment I can give about the Coursera FunProg course is that it's important to be aware of the fact that the course focuses on functional programming and its theoretical foundations, rather than just teaching Scala. If you want a quick intro to scala, go with the Twitter Scala school (http://twitter.github.com/scala...), and Effective Scala (http://twitter.github.com/effec...)
If you want to go all the way, the course will give you a good foundation for any functional language you use in the future.

For anyone interested, there is an online free Scala course in Coursera, by non other then Scala creator, Martin Odersky:
By the way Sagie, any feedback you can give of this course, by looking at the syllabus?

By now - I'm totally blown away by the sheer amount of human talent that newBrandAnalytics has acquired. Talking with any of you guys is a real pleasure. I really enjoyed the session although I had to leave earlier and looking forward to hearing you again.
I would definitely love to participate in a Play Framework / Scala workshop. Kudos !!!
