About

Elm is a functional, typed language that compiles to JavaScript, and it's a language that's aimed at making frontend development a pleasure. In this workshop, we'll explore the basics of Elm, with time devoted both to basic syntax and to the core principles of the Elm language. We'll also explore some of the tooling that makes Elm a delight to work with. If you're frustrated by runtime exceptions, you're curious about functional programming, or you don't want to argue about code formatting, then this is the workshop for you!
