Functional Programming in Scala Capstone

This course is a part of Functional Programming in Scala, a 5-course Specialization series from Coursera.

In the final capstone project you will apply the skills you learned by building a large data-intensive application using real-world data. You will implement a complete application processing several gigabytes of data. This application will show interactive visualizations of the evolution of temperatures over time all over the world. The development of such an application will involve: — transforming data provided by weather stations into meaningful information like, for instance, the average temperature of each point of the globe over the last ten years ; — then, making images from this information by using spatial and linear interpolation techniques ; — finally, implementing how the user interface will react to users’ actions.

capstone project in 5 reviews

I really enjoyed this course - it goes from the very basics of Spark and tests your ability regarding Scala knowledge.The capstone project is really well structured, but at times it felt like the instructors could give more information concerning some definitions around the project, i.e.

Tough to design a capstone for a course, but I was never really able to get excited about the capstone project.

The course's introductory description, "In the final capstone project you will apply the skills you learned by building a large data-intensive application using real-world data."

The capstone project is a great exercise in assimilating all the knowledge from the other related courses in function programming package.

Great course and specialization!

Great course!

Great course/project/specialization In my view this course fails on 3 fronts:1) the construction of the exercises is quite poor: they don't build well on each other and they don't really produce a sensible application, because many optimization opportunities are ignored - for example, to avoid having to calculate the same thing multiple times, to ensure that lists are ordered for quicker searching etc.

Some argue that they should allow us to write everything from scratch and judge the grades by the output, allowing more flexibility for the developemt process.

If you allow me to start from scratch, I'm gonna finish it with C++ or Python.The one thing I say they should really fix is the instability of the grader.
