Haskell is most likely quite different from any language you've ever used before. Compared to the usual set of concepts in a programmer's mental toolbox, functional programming offers us a profoundly different way to think about software. 8 comments

In Haskell, we de-emphasise code that modifies variables or objects. Instead, we focus on functions that take immutable values as input and produce new values as output. Given a fixed input, one of these functions will always return the same result. This is a core idea behind functional programming. 9 comments

Along with not modifying data, Haskell functions don't usually talk to the external world. They don't read or write files; initiate or respond to network connections; or make robot arms move. 9 comments

We abandon some ideas that might seem fundamental, such as repeating an action using a looping construct. We have other, more effective ways, to perform repetitive tasks. 3 comments

Even the way in which we evaluate expressions is different in Haskell. We defer every computation until its result is actually needed: Haskell is a lazy language. This isn't just a matter of moving work around: it deeply affects how we write programs. 6 comments
