NYC / Serbia

I'm relatively new to programming. I started with PHP, but I'd like to learn a more "powerful" language. I'm currently trying to decide whether to learn Haskell or C++ as my first "big boy" language. At the moment, I'm leaning towards Haskell, but with enough convincing, I could choose C++. Thus, I'm here.

A friend of mine wants to save money on development cost by hiring me to write some programs for his accounting firm. He was the first person to mention Haskell to me, and is strongly recommending that I learn Haskell, and take his gig (a pretty good paying gig at that ;) ).

Beyond programming stuff, I was raised in Belgrade, Serbia, to a mostly American family. I frequently travel between NYC and the Balkans.

I'll add more here later :P
