About the workshop: 

The talk itself will include comparison between ELM and JS, ELM and modern frontend frameworks, introduction to ELMs data types, syntax and a way of doing things. In the workshop we will be building a ToDo list app that will leverage local storage for data persistence.

Does that sound like something you'd be interested in? Join us, and we'll see you there!

Requirements:

Couple of years of experience in any mainstream programming language. Be it C#, JavaScript, Ruby or any other.

Go to this URL and follow setup instructions. Should work on Node above version 6. :

If you see "Hello world", then it means you are good to go. 

Next, please take 5 minutes to read about ELMs basic data types. While not strictly necessary, it will be highly helpful to you :)
