Have the best of both worlds. Construct elegant class hierarchies for maximum code reuse and extensibility, implement their behavior using higher-order functions. Or anything in-between.Learn More

Scala runs on the JVM, so Java and Scala stacks can be freely mixed for totally seamless integration.
So the type system doesn’t feel so static. Don’t work for the type system. Let the type system work for you!
Use data-parallel operations on collections, use actors for concurrency and distribution, or futures for asynchronous programming.
Combine the flexibility of Java-style interfaces with the power of classes. Think principled multiple-inheritance.
Think “switch” on steroids. Match against class hierarchies, sequences, and more.
Functions are first-class objects. Compose them with guaranteed type safety. Use them anywhere, pass them to anything.
We’re very happy to announce that the first 3 out of 4 courses in our Scala specialization have launched on Coursera! The courses available today include:
As in the past, all courses feature the much-loved automatic grading of programming assignments!
The final course in the pipeline is Big Data Analysis with Scala and Spark, which we’re hoping will follow in a couple of months along with the Scala capstone project – a ~4 week long project designed to push you to build a larger, more challenging Scala application.
All courses are available both for free and as part of the Scala specialization, which is a verified mini-degree from Coursera.
Or to enroll in each course independently (for free, but without a certificate), you can visit each course’s landing page:
More info about each course can be found on the Scala Specialization page, or on the Scala Center’s website. Questions, or to join the discussion about the Scala Center, visit us in the Scala Center gitter channel!
