The internet’s current framework darling is React, but most people aren’t as familiar with the language that influenced it: Elm. Elm is a functional language specifically designed for the creation of error-free, high-performance, robust frontend websites.
Join Ethan Brown for an introduction to this underrated gem of a language. You’ll learn how Elm influenced popular paradigms in React and compare and contrast Elm code with React. Ethan also details Elm’s interoperability with other frontend frameworks and outlines how you can progressively move your frontend to Elm. Along the way, Ethan demonstrates a small example blockchain visualization application to highlight language features and Elm’s unique advantages.
