I don't really recall where I first bumped into Haskell. I have know about the language for around 10 years or so, but I never felt I knew enough to use it productively. I really picked it up as a first class language after the release of Real World Haskell in 2008. Since then it has been my favourite language and I use it at every opportunity.
Haskell makes programming fun again! It is beautiful and powerful at the same time. Not something that can be said of any other language I know.
I am a software engineer, currently working in the telecommunications field. I have lived in many places around the world and currently live south of Frankfurt.
