Coursera class: Principles of Reactive Programming

A few weeks ago, I completed the "Principles of Reactive Programming" class led by Martin Odersky, Erik Meijer and Roland Kuhn. This Coursera class started in November 2013 and was around 7 weeks long. It was a great class in which we learnt how to write reactive programs in Scala. The course mainly covered Futures, Promises, Observables, Rx streams and Akka Actors. It was quite challenging but the assignments were very enjoyable. We wrote a virus simulation and a wikipedia suggestions app!

Update (30 Aug 2014): I have committed my assignment solutions to my GitHub repository.
