Haskell vs Visual Basic: What are the differences?

What is Haskell? An advanced purely-functional programming language. .

What is Visual Basic? Modern, high-level, multi-paradigm, general-purpose programming language for building apps using Visual Studio and the .NET Framework. Visual Basic is derived from BASIC and enables the rapid application development (RAD) of graphical user interface (GUI) applications, access to databases using Data Access Objects, Remote Data Objects, or ActiveX Data Objects, and creation of ActiveX controls and objects.

Haskell and Visual Basic belong to "Languages" category of the tech stack.

thoughtbot, DoxIQ, and Wagon are some of the popular companies that use Haskell, whereas Visual Basic is used by Microsoft, XMLi5 Ltd., and Universidade CEUMA. Haskell has a broader approval, being mentioned in 33 company stacks & 47 developers stacks; compared to Visual Basic, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 26 developer stacks.

    What are some alternatives to Haskell and Visual Basic?
    Scala
    Scala is an acronym for “Scalable Language”. This means that Scala grows with you. You can play with it by typing one-line expressions and observing the results. But you can also rely on it for large mission critical systems, as many companies, including Twitter, LinkedIn, or Intel do. To some, Scala feels like a scripting language. Its syntax is concise and low ceremony; its types get out of the way because the compiler can infer them.
    Clojure
    Clojure is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system.
    Erlang
    Some of Erlang's uses are in telecoms, banking, e-commerce, computer telephony and instant messaging. Erlang's runtime system has built-in support for concurrency, distribution and fault tolerance. OTP is set of Erlang libraries and design principles providing middle-ware to develop these systems.
    Rust
    Rust is a systems programming language that combines strong compile-time correctness guarantees with fast performance. It improves upon the ideas of other systems languages like C++ by providing guaranteed memory safety (no crashes, no data races) and complete control over the lifecycle of memory.
    Python
    Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
