NOTE: Elm’s online editor is your friend.
I’ve been doing all kinds of programming for years, but I’ve never found a subject interesting enough for me to actually want to blog about it.
The truth is that when it comes to programming languages, tools, etc. I tend to oscillate radically – think square wave – between two states: extremely-excited-about-it, and bored-to-death.
Elm is the first language that looks like it’s going to keep me excited for at least several trimesters to come.
I think it’s the mix of its asynchronous FRP implementation and the Haskell + ML + sugar magic of its syntax that seem to be right up my alley.
I’m gonna leave it at that, since I’ve got other things to do and I just wanted to make a not entirely useless first post for this new Jekyll site, but I promise that in the coming months this place is gonna be, like, Elm article town.
