- Just since Dave recored the lectures. Otherwise I would have gone to every single one of the. Great lecturer!» (25%)
- I"m a bit sad for this, the lectures were really good, and I tried to watch the recordings for most of the missed lectures. My mandatory course (TDA593-model driven software development)put their lecture in the same spot, even though it should have been in another block, so very much shame on them!!

- Again the other course (TDA593-model driven software development) was pretty much destroying for this and my other course by putting lectures in the wrong block, anticipating students to stay after excercise sessions and help them with research stuff (on the time of the functional programming lecture).» (High)
- Model Driven Software Development took more than its share.» (High)
- I studied 150%» (High)

- The examination is more difficult than expected.» (Good)
- Dave is an excellent lecturer, and the admin stuff seemed to work very well. The Google group was also quite active.» (Excellent)
- One of the best courses I"ve taken so far» (Excellent)
- Very interesting subject. Excellent lecturer. Very good labs.» (Excellent)
- I think this is my favourite course. Everything is very well organised. Teachers are very good. I still regret the absence of applause at the last lecture.» (Excellent)
- Very good teacher. Easy to follow assignments!» (Excellent)
- Very good course, will be taking advanced course next.» (Excellent)
- David Sands is a great, pedagogic teacher. Love the videolectures.» (Excellent)

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The labs. Great exercises.»
- The lectures, the lecturer, the recordings!»
- Dave Sands as lecturer»
- Video recording of lectures. Excellent lectures. Haskell.»
- Dave, video lectures, laborations. Basically keep the course as i was this year.»
- David Sands, video lectures and the general structure of the course.»
- Overall everything is good. Keep focus on the labs, you really "learn by doing".»
- The joke on the bottom of the exam preset page ,)! (Not the same, but something funny to lessen the tension :))»
- Everything»
- the recording of the lectures were very useful! David Sands is also a very good and pedagogical teacher.»
- Keep the vids, keep the levels of laborations.»
- Slides and video presentations. Assignments.»
- Video lectures, guest appearance by John Hughes»
- The concept of video lectures is good and should be preserved»
- cam record, labs, everything»
- the teacher»
- The teacher!»
- Video recording of every lecture»
- Videolectures. Fun labs.»

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Even though I think the lectures was awesome, Dave is one of the best lecturers I have at Chalmers, maybe we don"t need them since they"re all on video. I watched most of them at home.»
- It would be nice to get some credit for the labs, they take a considerable amount of work.»
- A bit more focus on the theoretical side of functional programming - what are its strengths and weaknesses compared to imperative/OO programming.»
- Nothing that I can think of right away.»
- Haskell"s library hell. Or if that cannot be arranged, you should probably look into an alternative way of doing the fourth assignment.»
- Maybe add some exercise sessions if money permits. Email correspondence was quite well but it"s always nice to have teacher/assistant led exercise sessions where you can ask questions etc.»
- Put up info longer before deadlines please :).»
- Stop using google-groups. If it isn"t rrs"d it"s hard to stay updated. »
- More explanations about functional GUI (if it should be included).»
- Lab supervision»
- I personally feel that instead of having a written exam, a practical exam or project would be more suitable»
- nothing»
- --»
- Lab 4: students may do what they want, but the scope should be restricted to the area where they can get good help from the supervisor. »

17. Additional comments

- Dave is awesome. Period.»
- The thing I didn"t like is having a pen-and-paper exam which was 99% code. Writing code by hand is very tedious and unnatural to programmers. It can be difficult to know what you need to insert/rename ahead of time, and you can only rub out and rewrite things so many times. I guess the examiners are sensitive to this, but this exam really should be done on a computer with some form of text editor. This is 2012, why on earth should this not be possible?»
- This is certainly one of the best course modules I"ve attended at Chalmers. Thank you!»
- Very good lecturer, very good course. It was quite hard, but I really felt that I learned a lot. Please try to show other course responsibles how a course webpage should be also (google group and links etc). A+»
- Great course!»
- Keep on rocking, Dave! (Also Simon Huber, who corrected our labs in an instant)»
- Thanks for this great course !»
- Suggestion for lab 4: The lab should probably be presented in the beginning of the course so that the student have enough time to setup the environment ready for it in their computers. That way, they can just focus on coding, instead of spending hours for installing a tool and trying to figure out how it works without any success..»
