If you're willing to use "Haskell" as a synonym for FP of sorts, you
can now get cool jobs writing Scala -- e.g. Sony uses it to manage all
of their disk farms; Clojure is awesome, although very different
(dynamic and macro); and Jane Street is always hiring in New York,
London and Tokyo doing OCaml. The JVM languages are really cool in
the way they can work anywhere Java can, including the Google App
Engine, and there're now startups exploiting that. F# is truly an
amazing feat, now fully supported by MSFT, so even there you have a
viable and sane alternative to boilerplate. #scala is full of Haskell
lurkers. They bring a lambdabot with them to annoy Java people with
what the types of things should be.
But I'd say, with such attitude the best thing to do is to gang up
with a few like-minded warriors and form a startup. This is what
these folks had done:
I think this is the best model.
