This SkillsCast was filmed at Front-ending with Elm

Robert Hardy presents a live-coding introduction to Elm, a Haskell-ish functional programming language that compiles to JavaScript at this month's Full Stack Quants!

We will build a small app in Elm and see how all the good bits come together:

  • the light-touch typing system,
  • the compilation step,
  • HTML built into the language (no need for templates).

Why would you ever go back to JavaScript?

Front-ending with Elm

Robert Hardy

Robert Hardy is a full stack quant, with over 12 years of experience in the front office teams of major financial institutions. He has built professional portfolio management systems entirely from open source components. He experienced an epiphany when he was introduced to TDD, pair programming and Agile methods. Robert talks and blogs on topics related to software and mathematics, and with his diploma in painting and ceramics in hand he claims to even have some level of expertise in the Fine Arts.
