Let's talk about why learning another syntax (sigh) is sometimes justified. Listen to our reasons and share yours aka why you're here.
Let's present the fundamentals (not basics) of Scala syntax - the things that recruited us as many others to be part of the functional (programming) movement.

Warm up questions: Can 'switch' statement be applied to strings in Java? How about C++?
