Haskell and the Future of Coding

Haskell is a 25-year-old programming language that isn’t all that popular. But Facebook uses it, and that’s a sign of things to come.

Wow. Not for a single day in the past 18 years did I even remotely think Haskell had a future. Even more with fancy hipster languages like, Ruby (not so much anymore), Scala, Groove, Erlang or even Clojure showing up, in commercial environments. Facebook is proving me wrong.
