- Great course, and awesome teacher!» (Excellent)
- A proper course. I"d recommend it to anyone. Lectures, labs, exercises and course reading was overall very good.» (Excellent)
- Very good course to get an overview of the topic, even though I"m not going to go deeper into it it feels really good to have some understanding of it.» (Excellent)
- The course material is excellent» (Excellent)
- Very good course.» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The labs»
- Book and Labs»
- The written lecture notes (in its book form) were well written and should be kept as course reading. The labs were fine. The last few lectures on language design and GF were interesting and should be kept in. »
- The labs and exercises were especially good.»
- The exercise sessions»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The only thing I felt was missing was some notes on JVM instructions (since JVM was mentioned and used throughout the course). Perhaps some kind of concise "cheat sheet" for JVM instructions and how they work could be useful. (It was hard to find something like this on the web!)»
- I couldn"t get exercise sessions" solutions when I couldn"t attend. The reason is they can be useful for next years students to get bonus point. In my point of view it is more important to reach things that you missed than getting bonus points. Also it seems who gets bonus points , actually doesn"t need them. So next year solutions should be published ,I think.»
- Maybe more about functional languages.»
- The plt book could have better explained how to structure the environment in a functional language interpreter - splitting the environment into function signatures and variables, and explaining how a closure can look like in actual code (it took me a long time to figure out that I needed to define it with data instead of type, to get recursion going)»

16. Additional comments

- I only did the labs, as I have passed the exam previously.»
- The format of the lecture notes as a book was really nice.»
