Please list your favourite programming languages.

Haskell, Lisp, Python, C/C++ and Java

How did you get interested in functional programming?

It started as a curiosity because, given the introduction I had, it seemed like it was completely useless in a practical setting. I worked through Yet Another Haskell Tutorial and I was immediately drawn in. After having learned about the perils of mutable state and the power and expressiveness of languages like Haskell I've never seen code in the same way.
