Dean Wampler has a talk (Why Big Data needs to be functional) which
starts off with Java and ends up around 20:00 with compositional


Scala was the first functional programming language   because
functional programming didn't exist before Java people became
interested in it. Still looks like OO to me.

Talk is also notable for the only funny programming joke ever told -
it comes up  in the first 5 minutes. James Iry's history of
programming languages is funniest thing ever written about programming
but I consider it to be epic comedic literature - joke doesn't do it
