For the last 6 months, Sofia has been working in a team that has been moving from their comfort zone into a 'New World'. Previously, they kept the balance of using the object-orientated features in Scala paired with functional programming concepts where they could. They now use http4s, functional composition, IO, Cats and fs2 streams.

Part of this decision came from an influence from the community and the abundance of resources for this technical landscape. Why did the tide shift? Was it curiosity, maintainability, performance, or all of the above?

Join in this talk to learn from her team's experience, looking at the pros and cons and most importantly the "BUT, WHY?"
