Functional Programming Principles in Scala just started today on Coursera - if anyone wants to do it together.

Here is the link to the course -

Scala Class on Coursera starts today!

I know this has been posted before, however the class starts today so I figured I'd remind anyone who may be interested. Here's the link:

The course is an introduction to functional programming with Scala, and is taught by Martin Odersky. This isn't an introductory programming course, and proficiency in an OO language (preferably Java or C#) is recommended.

Scala study group in Norfolk to follow the functional programming class.

My non-Redditor co-worker and I will be hosting a study group for the upcoming Scala/Functional Programming Class at 757 Labs starting Sep 11.

Week #1 Welcome: Meet & Greet Recommended Background You should have at least one year programming experience. Proficiency with Java or C# is ideal, but experience with other languages such as C/C++, Python, Javascript or Ruby is also sufficient.

Course Format: 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.

We will meet every Tuesday night (7pm to 9pm) for 8 weeks to discuss the online course topics, not peer review assignments, watch videos under other accounts, or share quiz or final exam answers.

Edit: The classes on Coursera also tend to offer a digital certificate of completion signed by the instructor.

Free geeky courses from (list of interesting ones inside) offers free online classes from some pretty swanky schools. The courses consist of video lectures, quizzes, etc. They are somewhat self-paced in that they have start and end dates and due dates for things, but you have flexbility within that format. You don't have to do any of the work and can "audit" the course if you like or you can complete it and get a certificate (for most).

Anyway, I figured I'd share a few interesting ones in here in order of when they start:

Albany Programming Meetup?

Specifically, anyone interested in working through a Coursera class? An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python looks fun if anyone's on the newer side of programming, and I'd be happy to help. Functional Programming Principles in Scala is also good if you have some comfort with programming but are looking for exposure to different ideas.

If anyone's up for a more advanced class, I'd love to work through Mining Massive Datasets or Bioinformatics Algorithms,cs-systems has a full list of upcoming CS courses. Anyone interested in these or others?
