Language Coolness

Language desirability has a huge impact on developers.

Is it easier to hire with these languages?


I met a guy at Silicon Milkroundabout (a jobs fair for London startups) who was hiring developers for a Haskell-only startup.

Generating interest from developers was not a problem for him, he assured me!

Can coolness be quantified?
