Please list your favourite programming languages.

Haskell, Java, XSLT/XPath, R

How did you get interested in functional programming?

Via Dr. Fritz Solms at UP, got involved in the (failed) Haskell Study Group in 2012. Have been using some functional techniques in transformation languages (e.g. XSLT) for several years. Frustrated with the verbosity and error-prone-ness of day-to-day tasks in imperative languages (e.g. Java).

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