Haskell is a functional language & very different from imperative langauges such as python,ruby,c++..etc . It is also called declarative language, the reason is simple one just describe the problem in the program instead of instructions on how to solve the problem .
Why Haskell ?
It’s just not the haskell , this is about functional language , equal importance is for the Scala . The main context for functional langauge is involvement of “Academia” , which other imperative language fails to bridge . It so much fun to learn mathematics and science using functional langauge .
Syntax might seems very unconventional to conventional programmers , but it’s just for the good . Functional programming discourages mutable variable & does not allow reassignment to variable.
Well if you reached so far , won’t you like to evaluate yourself .
