Description

For a front-end web development technology to be taken seriously, it must offer something truly unique that makes it stand out in a saturated field. Applications written in the Elm language are lightning fast and almost immune to run-time exceptions. This makes Elm a very attractive option for developers whose customers are increasingly sensitive to performance and quality. In this course, Elm: Getting Started, you'll get acquainted with Elm by learning why Elm is a functional language, and the strengths that that brings. Additionally, you'll be introduced to the standard Elm architectures that have been proven to yield fast, reliable, and extensible applications. Finally, you'll explore Elm's 4 core tools are and how to use them. By the end this course, you'll know everything you need to build your own Elm applications.

Hi everyone, my name is Michael Van Sickle and welcome to my course Elm: Getting Started.

For a front-end web development technology to be taken seriously, it must offer something truly unique that makes it stand out in a saturated field. Applications written in the Elm language are lightning fast and almost immune to run-time exceptions. Making it a very attractive option for developers whose customers are increasingly sensitive to performance and quality.

In this course, you are going to learn everything you need to get started building applications with Elm.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • How Elm gives you all the power and reliability of a functional language, even if you don’t know what a monad is
  • What the standard components of an Elm application are and what they’re roles are
  • How to setup a local development environment
  • What each of Elm’s core tools are and how to use them
By the end this course, you’ll know everything you need to build your own Elm applications.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the basics of web programming including HTML, JavaScript and CSS.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Elm with the Elm: Getting Started course, at Pluralsight.
