Scala, according to its creator, Martin Odersky, was created as a fusion between functional and object oriented concepts in a statically typed language. This pragmatic approach behooves Java programmers to explore the ease in which they can start coding in Scala and as a natural progression start indulging into the functional aspects of the language. I have found Scala to be a good mix of Java transformed to the simpler syntax requirements of C# and powerful concepts inherited from earlier functional languages.
