My adventure with Elm
Elm is a new programming language based on the idea of Functional Reactive Programming (FRP). Elm lets you create highly interactive web applications without all the messy callbacks tangling around shared states.
In this talk Yan Cui will give a gentle introduction to Elm and share his experience learning Elm and recreating Missile Command in Elm with less than 250 LOC. You will leave this session with a handle on the Functional Reactive Programming paradigm and a basic understanding of the Elm language.
