My favourite programming language paradigm is: typed strictly evaluating impure functional programming. Examples include Scala and OCaml.
Also, as other Uwaterloo CS students will confirm: Racket is bae!
Other related things I care about: gc pauses and tail calls.
I like all things camels, including as stated above OCaml!
Here are a group of baby camels. May their ever smiling faces bring you happiness and joy!
