Scala has evolved from being "a more concise, more strongly typed, Java" to being a deeply powerful language, capable of utilizing instruments of purely functional programming, with the help of richly featureful Open Source libraries. A random walk through one of the open-source projects by new-comers to the Scala language or those with a theoretical background in Category Theory alike is sure to be met with both astonishment and confusion. In this talk we will delve into some FP patterns and little known gems that are available to both simplify and enrich our lives as we go about our day-to-day routine of building software.
