I see your case, and it makes sense. VAVR creators specifically say they offer data structurures, not all for functional purity (eg IO monads): github.com/vavr-io/vavr/issues/20#.... If I was on Java path, I'd say I use some of elements of fucntional programming, but not the full stack.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
