So I am looking to build a startup and I want to use Haskell. Here is my question how do you hire people to do Haskell. I have a few ideas but maybe there are some other ideas out there.
So here are my ideas:
1) Hang out around the CS department of a local university (Tel Aviv University) and see who likes functional programming.
2) hire good programmers who don't know haskell and give them a copy of of Learn You Haskell for a Great Good and expect there will be a ramp up time.
Any other ideas
Just to clarify I will be the lead programmer for this project, but like many things it will at some point have to grow from one person to many. As for why Haskell there are a number of reasons, starting with the type safety eliminating a large class of bugs.
