What is your Haskell experience?

I've been studying it on my own for the last 3 years, but have never had an opportunity to use it at work.

What is your software development background?

I've been programming for more than 20 years, in a wide variety of languages, including 68000 assembly language, C, C++, Java, Perl and Ruby.

Why is Haskell so much better than sliced bread?

Because of its emphasis on keeping things pure, its general rigor, its advanced type system, and its support for STM.

Introduction

I'm a professional Java developer who's become convinced that functional programming is way of the future.
