What is eager?

Eager is a keyword in Scala. When you declare a variable to be eager, it means that the variable will not be assigned until it is referenced. This ensures that during execution, the variable will only be used when it is actually needed. This can be a performance boost if the variable is only used once.

In practice, declaring variables to be eager is not always necessary. Scala has a rich syntactic sugar that allows you to write read-only variables without having to use the eager keyword. Nevertheless, it can be helpful to know how to use eager variable when necessary.
