Book Description

Web development with JavaScript usually involves dealing with performance and maintenance issues. JavaScript fatigue makes it difficult for many developers to keep up with the increasing complexity posed by the multitude of JavaScript frameworks with changing versions, the need to use different tools such as task runners, module bundlers, compilers, testing suites, linting and debuggers. Elm is an easy to learn, functional programming language that simplifies web development by eliminating complexity associated with using JavaScript for web development. Elm is a statically typed language and thus makes a front end web developer's life easier by preventing any run-time errors.

You will begin by seeing the bigger picture of where Elm fits in web development world and learning the basics of Elm programming. Firstly, you will get a taste of web development with Elm by developing a simple fizz-buzz app. Next you will get hands-on with advanced Elm concepts as you develop your own personal blogging website, a unit conversion app and a weather app with Elm. Finally, you will also learn how to implement user authentication by developing a chat application. By the end of the book you will learn Elm programming, its applications and appreciate how Elm simplifies web development for you.
