Introduction

Functional programming enthusiast, slowly gaining more insight. I am playing with Haskell when I can, but professionally I have used Scala, Erlang, Smalltalk as well as a few of the mainstream languages.

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.

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

I'm using Scala at work
