With all due respect, I didn’t say Haskell and Erlang are pushing FP.
I said FP is being pushed and Elixir/Haskell will see increased usage as a result.
I quite agree that JS and popular libraries are absolutely the primary force pushing FP. I think it will become the standard, especially as the next generation of devs emerge without decades of OOP doctrine.
I’m not saying this as a critic of OOP. I started out in e-commerce bridging IBM midrange servers and .NET. I’ve long been an OO dev. I just prefer the functional style and I think OOP will die out and FP will take its place.
