Scala, Haskell, and even Python. I like Scala cause it's a mix of OO and FP which puts an interesting twist on things.
I rewrote a huge part of our companies backbone in a FP language (Scala) with 100% immutable vars and datatypes to better Scale our application during insane jumps in business that we get over the holidays. I enjoy discussing how FP and Immutable data types helped making our application be better multi-threaded across several servers.
Scala, Python, Java, and C
Big advocate of Lambda languages and have been using functional programming concepts with Python and Scala for last 4 years and want to go further with my knowledge in other fp languages like Haskell.
