What is it?

To kick off the Elm user group we thought we'd run an Elm tutorial workshop. We're probably going to follow https://github.com/evancz/elm-architecture-tutorial/ to begin with.

Since most folks will be new to Elm there's no expectation that anyone will know anything (even the folks mentoring are probably only a little bit ahead in the tutorial ;)).

Thanks to Intercom (https://intercom.io/) for hosting us! Go 🚀!

What do you need to know?

Elm's errors are really helpful, so it's a good language to start programming with. It even spots typos and suggests fixes.

Elm is a great language to learn web development with, you don't need to know Javascript (but an understanding of web browsers and HTML helps in the tutorial).

Elm also contains a nice graphics library, so you can do graphics and games as well without touching HTML.

Elm is also a neat way to get into functional programming for folks who've been interested in trying it.
