What is your experience with Haskell?

Initially learned Haskell at uni. Use Haskell routinely for everyday tasks in preference to scripting languages, in part because of the kinds of tasks I need to script. Probably best known for the "Fastest Fib in the West" in terms of Haskell, but also maintained the hugs Debian package for a couple of years, wrote a custom IMAP fetchmail analogue to work around Lotus Notes Domino server bugs, and elementary/naive Grobner basis and symmetric group calculators (none released on hackage/etc., but shapr and other FreeNode #haskell denizens know of them).

What is your experience with other functional languages (e.g., Lisp family, ML family)? What about more imperative languages (e.g., Java, C)?

10 years kernel programming in C on the DYNIX/ptx, AIX, and Linux kernels. Learned Common Lisp, Scheme, Standard ML, O'Caml, Prolog and several variants, etc. at uni, have substantial recall of all. Also learned Java, C++ at uni, have substantial recall, not immersed in OO methodology, lack substantial library reconnoiter. Employed writing back-end userspace adserving code in C utilizing libevent and concurrencykit.


Linux kernel programmer branching out into online advertising.
