If you’ve enrolled in coursera’s course about functional programming and Scala, then you have probably read an email about cheating discovered in assignments' solutions. This discussion at ycombinator is awesome. Different opinions and thoughts that break the limits of the initial topic :)

Until next week have fun with functional programming :)
