- The lectures in live with emacs»
- David and Ann»
- Daves. Don"t change him. He is the best.»

- David Sands.»
- David Sands»
- Dave! :)»
- Dave! One of the best lecturers I"ve had so far.»

- The lecturer :-)»
- The guest lectures were good and interesting.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I think that the course progress was a bit to slow. I have never used a functional language before but I still think to much time where spent on things that where to easy.»
- get to the interesting parts a little quicker. dont waste too much time with the easiest parts. the lecture of gui programming wasn"t too interesting. »
- The slides are not very good. I"ve missed one lecture (the one with the IO and Monad). It was very hard to understand these notions with the slides... Not enought explanations, details,...»
- Krasimir»
- The grading system of the lab assignments. They were rejecting too much and sometimes it was not reasonable.»
- The labs and the exercises, decrease somewhat. »
- Higher workload on the first labs»
- Nothing.»
- Introduce lab-sessions»
- Deadline same day as exam is not so nice, skip one lab?»

16. Additional comments

- this was a great course and an eyeopener. I will defenetly read Advanced functional programming now!»
- I missed a deadline since I thought it was on a tuesday (as the two previous ones were). Maybe a more consistent deadline scheme would be good. Like all deadlines on mondays or whatever.»
- Good guest lectures»
- Very useful course!»
- Extremely pleased with the course, it was interesting and fun. As said before Dave is an excellent lecturer. »
