Certainty and Clarity are certain to become clear

Level 6, 341 George St (Atlassian)

It feels like each day there's progress within JavaScript toward a point where our language adapts to the goals set in Functional Programming.

With the progress comes a new Jargon that helps us incorporate the decisions we need to adopt to embrace the benefits of FP in our JavaScript.

This month we're looking at Elm as a reference point, the new outlook and jargon Functional Programming is lending to JavaScript, and how we can test our JavaScript explore some of the benefits as we look ahead.

A Type of Checking

Learn about types and tools that check them: Flow and TypeScript. We'll learn to catch bugs, shrink our tests, and write more robust code.

A State of Pure Confusion

From the simple function, to data modelling, to control flow; Functional Programming emphasises “certainty”.

To embrace that certainty, we need a new bundle of confusing sounding words; immutability, purity, statelessness, polymorphism, algebraic data types...

This presentation will grow our vocabulary to bust that jargon

A View of Elm

Elm is a functional programming language and runtime with a strong notion of how to build and structure frontend applications.

Let's look at what parts make Elm unique, and what analogues we can find in JavaScript.
