Galois is a 100% Haskell shop, and we're around 40 people now - not all
are engineers though.

At the Commercial Users of FP workshop this year, when asked to raise
their hands what FP languages people used at work, the majority of the
room (60 people? / 120 in the room -- check the video) said they'd used
Haskell at work. More than any of the other FP langs present (we also
asked about Erlang, OCaml, Scheme, F#).
