For an imperative programmer, switching to a functional paradigm can be a confusing transition. It's easy to become overwhelmed by concepts such as immutability, anonymous functions, Category Theory, and application of referential transparency.
In this talk, you will explore the experience from coaching imperative developers into FP and Scala, to learn how to introduce functional concepts in a logical order without confusing or losing the learners.
