I just wanted to echo this a bit. I'm a Ruby on Rails developer in my day
job. While I still enjoy ruby, I was very proud that my studies of Haskell
helped me identify a problem a week or so ago that would be much more
difficult to solve in an imperative language and benefits from laziness.
While the role of this tool will be limited compared to what I do day by
day, I can finally say that I'm using Haskell at work.
If anyone is curious, the project is essentially a service that determines
the optimum order for a comparison shopping engine.
