It uses haskell (see e.g. http://book.realworldhaskell.org/read/why-functional-programming-why-haskell.html) in snippet illustrations of code, and as far as I can tell (not very far) haskell sounds very good and promising tool for coding block chain ecosystems.

That blog belongs to Kushti he is one of two coders actively working on NXT server code.
Haskell is indeed an excellent language for such tasks as there are numerous other languages.

Java however (FIMK is done java - for the readers) also is an excellent language for this purpose IMO much better suited than C or C++ used by bitcoin and it's clones.
