Are you familiar with the following recipe?

  • First define an API and its documentation.

  • Then take the API and create its server implementation.

  • Then create a client for the same API, but in JavaScript land.

  • Then imperatively modify the browser’s DOM in order to allow user to do and see stuff.

Sounds about right?

During this talk you will forget about all these things and become a full-stack functional web developer. I will show you how type-level web server APIs can play nicely with the client code written in Elm.
