Monads in Scala

Paul Agron is back again to present on the compelling topic of Monads. Paul will give an overview of Monads and then discuss some specific implementations in Scala such as Option or Future. We'll talk about for comprehensions and how they are just syntactic sugar for map, flatMap, and filter. Join us to discuss this hot topic and vouch for your favorite monad metaphor. ;)

There are many good articles on monads to provide background information. Comment with ones that you have found interesting. Here's a few I have come across:

    Really liked how Paul built up the Monad example from simple function closures. Nice simple lead into the subject
