Elm is easy to learn. But depending on your prior language experience, it can be hard to adapt to!
Want a better grasp on how to make the most of Elm? These 5 videos can help bridge the gap:
Richard Feldman demonstrates the strength of Elm’s type system, showing how it allows you to model your data precisely.
Invalid states you might encounter in other languages can be made unrepresentable.
Jeremy Fairbank shows common pitfalls that result from depending on familiar built-in primitive types like
Int, and recommends better alternatives that Elm makes possible.
In Elm, these interactions are not possible! Files can be better organized around data structures and helper functions.
Richard Feldman discusses narrowing function signatures to organize code, reduce cognitive load, and make debugging easier.
He also explains the mistake of misapplying object-oriented “parent-child communication”.
Evan illustrates Elm’s design values and makes a case for its model of success and sustainability.
