    Functional programming as a programming style and discipline is useful even in languages which are not pure functional languages. By practising programming in a pure functional language like Haskell, programmers can drastically improve the quality of code when coding in other languages as well.

    The talk is based on first hand experience of using Haskell in internal courses in our organisation to improve code quality.

    This talk will cover Gofer (one of the earliest variants of Haskell) as a teaching tool, including the choice of the language, the features from Haskell that should (and shouldn't) be covered and the obstacles and benefits of the exercise.
