comment Are there any downsides or problems with Haskell?
"And hand-optimized Haskell code is often quite ugly (though I suppose that is also true in most other languages)." This. When people want to show the elegance of Haskell, they publish short and sweet code, which unfortunately would give you quite bad performance if run on a production-like amount of data. When people want to show that "Haskell is as fast as C++", they publish convoluted and hard to read code, which is still slower than a much more readable version in C.

comment Asking back technical questions during the interview (as the interviewee)
@user61891 Why? It's a very reasonable answer. Don't fix what ain't broke.

comment Should java developers know about garbage collection algorithms?
Yes, they should. Otherwise they run the risk of writing software which breaks under heavy load.

comment What are the factors that have made Java a success as a programming language in enterprise computing?
@FrankShearar "It's vastly more complex than many other syntaxes out there: Smalltalk, Scheme, ML" - true, but among adult-life languages, you won't easily find a language with significantly simpler syntax than Java.
