What is your Haskell experience?

Programming with functional languages for some years.

What is your software development background?

C++ and mathematics.

Why is Haskell so much better than sliced bread?

Haskell is possibly the best thing since the invention of imperative languages and sliced bread. Haskell is continually reinventing itself, never succumbing to being stale. It adopts theoretical research from logic and computer science. Meanwhile, bread and butter languages continually shun the novel ingredients to to be found in the computer theory literature. Imperative languages reluctance to become more sophisticated leads to them being increasingly less relevant. Haskell will probably share in a similar success that the humble pan has discovered since its reinvention many decades ago. It's widespread adoption is overdue.
