Please list your favourite programming languages.

Haskell, Scala, Clojure, Erlang, Smalltalk

How did you get interested in functional programming?

I was reading "The Pragmatic Programmer" while working as a Smalltalk developer. The authors challenged me to learn a language that is way different from what I've done before. So I bought their Erlang book. While reading up on Erlang I also discovered Clojure, Haskell and a bunch of other languages.

What is your highest level of education? There are no specific requirements, we have educations from high school up to PhD level and everything in between.

BSc Computer Science

Introduction

Functional programming enthusiast, slowly gaining more insight. I am playing with Haskell when I can, but professionally I have used Scala, Erlang, Smalltalk and a few more boring languages.
