The course starts September 16th. Has anyone here taken this course before? If you did, what's your experience?

I have, it is a good introduction to both functional programming and Scala. I later found out that many of the assignments are derived from SICP.

Thank you eranation.

I've played a bit with Scheme and Haskell. Scala is the next on the list and this course looks like an excellent opportunity to check it out.
