  • Haskell is one of the leading languages for teaching functional programming, enabling students to write simpler and cleaner code, and to learn how to structure and reason about programs.
  • Haskell is one of those languages that mathematician-type/minded people love! It's sort of a language for geniuses, by geniuses. So, you should probably know about it if only to be able to say "well, is this kind of like Haskell", and if so, you know you have to hire some very smart people to program in it. Haskell is sort of a modern-day Lisp, in that respect.
