So next time I hear the "you can't get the programmers" line I'm going to respond with something like this:"If you post an advert for a Haskell developer you will get 20 applicants. All of those people will be the kind of developer who learns new programming languages to improve their own abilities andstretch themselves, because nobody yet learns Haskell just to get a job."If you post an advert for a Java developer you will get 200 applicants. Most of them will be the kind of developer who learned Java because there are lots of Java jobs out there, and as long as they know enough to hold down a job then they see no reason to learn anything."
If this isn't an "elevator pitch" for using Haskell then I don't know what the hell *is*!
Seriously, this is a pretty damned persuasive argument... _______________________________________________ Haskell-Cafe mailing list [email protected] http://www.haskell.org/mailman/listinfo/haskell-cafe
