Please list your favourite programming languages.

How did you get interested in functional programming?

I read some article's and it got me interested. I don't remember when (2009/2010 or before) but it was probably on infoq, dzone or slashdot or somewhere that i read about it.

Are you currently using functional programming in the workplace, or are you just looking at it informally?

No answer yet

Introduction

I am developer mostly focused on the JVM, Python and the Linux Stack. I get my kicks from functional programming (yet i still love OOP stuff) and anything new (computer related) in general :)
