Functional Programming Principles in Scala (7 part series)

Coursera.org is offering a course entitled "Functional Programming Principles in Scala" where Martin Odersky will serve as the instructor.  The class will consist of lecture videos, which are between 6 and 15 minutes in length. These contain integrated quiz questions per video. There will also be standalone homeworks that are not part of video lectures, and a final exam.

The course is broken into seven weeks with updates every Tuesday. We'll hold meetups the following Thursday where we'll project the course videos and run through the integrated quizes together.

While it is not strictly necessary, I encourage anyone interested in attending to register for the course personally. Apparently Martin will sign your completion certificate as part of the package if you do so.

Seven weeks of consecutive meetups should serve as a nice motivator for those (like me) who are interested in completing the course but might otherwise not make the time.

    The videos run a little less than an hour this week so we'll spend the first 30 minutes reviewing last week's exercises. Be certain to submit your assignments before attending so to not run afoul of the honor policy. Please try to arrive on time but we'll continue to respond to calls for entry on (202)[masked] until 7pm. We're starting the videos promptly at 7pm and won't be manning the doors afterwards. Please update your RSVP to reflect your intentions. Thanks!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
