I'm facing a really tough problem. About 3 years ago I stopped doing
freelance and quite nicely paid projects in Java, PHP and C#.
Now I'm dire straits, again, and need to get back into the project
market which seems to have picked up again, quite a lot of projects out
there and it looks like I could ask again for decent rates. (I
personally call them compensation because I never ever enjoyed doing
Java etc. but the money was good.)
Anyway the problem is that I am totally reluctant to code in anything
else but haskell. It has always been a problem to me getting up early in
the morning, taking a train to work and coming back in the evening
totally exhausted. But I think I could manage that again, at least for 3
or 6 months and then my bank account will be fine again and I can take
it easy for another year or so.
But this time all this is much harder. I really cannot see myself
writing such huge amounts of code over and over again not doing much,
well you know the story.
BTW this is not meant as a fun post, I'm actually quite serious, ie. I
need money, only way of getting it is doing Java, C# or PHP.
So how does one get off haskell? Are there people in similar situations
that have managed? How did you do it?
