Monad for Scala Newbies

Intended audience: People who come from Java background and just starting to explore Scala/FP and wanna learn what’s a Monad in the simplest way possible.

There are plenty of articles in the Internet about Monads but nothing is simple enough to understand for such specific set of audience I mentioned above (like the past me several years back or like my newly joined colleagues).

So in this article I’ll try to explain Monads in a way that is easily understandable for them.
