Why is worth to learn Haskell?

Haskell is a statically typed functional language. For two decades it attemps to maintain his status of academic language but in recent years is more often used productively.
Althought is difficult to suspect that it is going to be a mainstream programming language, is worth to learn it. It open eyes to world of functional programmming.
During the prelection the author will try to show which elements of programming in Haskell are so important for the development of generaln programming skills.
