Scala is a unique language blending functional and object-oriented programming, bringing many FP concepts to the mainstream and popularizing them.

At first sight, such a combination might make the language big and complex. But the reality is different: Scala's grammar is smaller than that of most popular languages (e.g., Java or C#).

Scala's uniqueness comes from the fact that every language feature is extremely well designed, blending seamlessly with other constructs and with a few corner cases. This design precision is visible in Scala's regular syntax and the language semantics.

Let's explore some of Scala's unique features that make "everyday" coding faster and safer while keeping the code easy to understand and close to the business domain.
