In this talk, Chris Marshall will discuss the challenges of moving from Java to Scala “in the enterprise”. He will cover pitfalls, pratfalls, explaining his team's journey: from wishing for “Java with Closures” to navigating a forest of new concepts: monoids, monads, applicative functors and folds. Was their choice for Scala a good idea?
