How did you get interested in functional programming?

In one of my third year modules (COS 333 - Programming Languages) we did a survey over the different languages and the different paradigms they fit into. We briefly touched upon Haskell. A programming language that walks so close to mathematical thinking naturally grabbed my attention. Since then I've dabbled and played around with the language, slowly but surely building my understanding.

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

Introduction

Hello, I'm Dolan. I studied computer science at tuks coupled with as many mathematics modules I could take. I find that I am quite interested in functional languages. Particularly Haskell.
