Coursera class: Functional Programming Principles in Scala

I thought I'd mention that one of my highlights of last year was completing the "Functional Programming Principles in Scala" class led by Martin Odersky, the designer of Scala. This Coursera class started in September 2012 and was around 7 weeks long. Learning about functional programming was a rewarding experience and I found the course and assignments quite challenging, but immensely enjoyable. I even managed to get a distinction! I believe this course will be running again this year and I'd highly recommend it to people who wish to discover functional programming and Scala.

I have committed my assignment solutions to my GitHub repository.

I am now looking forward to starting some new classes in 2013!
