Functional Programming Concepts in Scala

### LOGISTICS ###
This is an online meetup. We will use google meet ( and the link will be shared 30 minutes before the event. )

There is also a plugin for Chrome
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-meet-grid-view/bjkegbgpfgpikgkfidhcihhiflbjgfic

and one for Firefox
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-meet-gridview/

that allows all participants to be shown in a grid

### ABOUT THE TOPIC ###
In this session, we will try to apply Functional Programming principles and iteratively improve a procedural program.

It will be an interactive, partially live coding session, using Scala. No prior knowledge of Scala is required, although it would be a plus.

The purpose of this session would be to understand the pros and cons of writing purely functional code and hopefully get convinced to use some of those concepts in your everyday life.

### ABOUT THE SPEAKER ###
Thomas is a Scala developer and a functional programming enthusiast, currently working for a fintech in London.
