You can take a look to my delicious clojure tag to get links... http://delicious.com/atreyu_bbb/clojure I choosed clojure too because it seems beautiful and straightforward and it is completely different from java but you can use all this ugly code

The code is pretty understandable once you are able to wrap your head around the language's idiosyncrasies. Though we have nothing in production I am really looking forward to pushing Mochiweb for one of our production environments. Looking forward to hearing more about your Clojure experiences.

Pattern Matching is one feature tat counted me in. If you really want to learn a lot about FP then Haskell is the way to go. But i'm yet to hear any real world system based on Haskell (May be my ignorance ). Clojure has some nice data struts . If you like/from lisp dialect, you are choice is correct :) Go for scala ! :) Its hybrid and best of both the worlds. Pattern Matching is one feature tat counted me in.

However, I clearly see the advantages of it. All the best to you. I was (once) very much enthu about learning Haskel. Guess sometime later :-) But please share the experiences -- I love comparisons as I am not very loyal to any language or technology. Will switch for productivity :-) For me, FP is pretty hard to understand. However, I clearly see the advantages of it. All the best to you.
