Presenter: Guillaume Belrose

Hi all,

In this meetup, I will be giving an introduction to Elm ( ).

Elm is a typed functional programming language (with a Haskell-like syntax) which compiles down to JavaScript. It's core purpose is to provide an elegant framework for writing front-end web applications. If you like React and friends (virtual dom, Redux, etc, etc...) then you might feel right at home.

This presentation will be a re-run of my DevConf talk (so it is likely to contain references to LEGO, Batman and Star Wars).

Lambda level: λ. I am still learning Elm, so the talk is fairly beginner friendly. I will try my best not to mention the words Monad or Typeclass.

Warning: although we are going to be looking at example web apps, the CSS is likely to be atrocious.
