We will discuss and understand the monadic structures, going through the most important monads, it's operations and main advantages of the functional programming using Scala, Kotlin, Swift, a little bit of Clojure and why not JavaScript.

During the talk we should also realize why concepts as laziness and immutable data are the cornerstone of high throughput threaded systems and how its guarantee reliability and performance.

By the end of the day you should know by heart the main monads and how to use them solve different day-by-day problems and deeply in love with functional programming.
