Advanced Programming A1N, 7,5 ECTS, IT712A

This course gives an introduction to functional programming and can be seen as a basis for programming for Big Data. The main programming language within the course will be the “scalable language” Scala.

Big Data analytics puts new demands on the programming needed to implement data mining, data analysis and visualization of results. The amount of data in itself makes even traditionally efficient algorithms unmanageable, which means that scalable algorithms become more and more important.
