I've been thinking about picking up a functional programming language like Scala.
However since the introduction of Lambdas in Java 8, I'm trying to decide whether it might be best to stick with Java 8 and learn to use Lambdas.
In comparison with scala, which do you think is easier to learn and use?

Thank you Gobind for the question.

I personally have not used Scala, so I cannot answer your question. You have spiked my interest by this question so I will need to check out Scala when I have time.

I'm curious to see how others would answer this question as well who can make the comparison.

Sincerely,
-- Robert
