Scala and functional programming can be scary at first for those of us coming from the OOP world. With a bunch of new concepts such as immutability, first-class functions, implicits, and a ton of language features, it is easy to get overwhelmed when jumping into Scala.

Walking away from this session you will have a good starting point for starting with Scala without needing to know what monads and applicative functors are.
