In this course, you’ll learn how to employ all the primary programming tools this language offers and assemble those tools’ products into a coherent application.

What you'll learn

More and more of the most ambitious and freshest projects, meant to be developed by larger teams of developers, are being written in PureScript. For a developer to be part of a lucrative and exciting team like this or lead one as an invaluable agent of a leading company, that developer must have a solid understanding of PureScript.

These techniques are all related to effects, including the Effect monad, asynchronous effects, and the FFI (foreign function interface.)
