In Skillshare’s unique philosophy, everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a learner. Rather than a traditional lecture format, courses are offered within a global online learning community in which learners collaborate and learn by doing. Instructors are industry leaders who share their skills with anyone who wants to learn. No credits are offered. Founded by online entrepreneurs Michael Karnjanaprakorn and Malcolm Ong, Skillshare’s online “campus” was launched in April 2011. Its catalog has grown from 15 to more than 250 online courses that cover creative arts, entrepreneurship, branding and marketing, lifestyle and technology. The School of MakeOurMark, with courses in photography, illustration and tattooing, was launched in October 2013, and the School of Design went live the following month. Among the instructors who have taught courses are Seth Godin, founder of online marketing firm Yoyodyne, who teaches a class on entrepreneurship; DJ Young Guru, who leads a course on mixing and recording; and actor, writer and director James Franco, whose course focuses on screenwriting for short films. You can begin a Skillshare collaboration by taking an introductory course in a particular area to learn, for example, the fundamentals of Photoshop and expand your knowledge with a five-part, in-depth Photoshop series.

Course Description

Curious why Functional Programming is on the Rise? Do you wish there was a better option than JavaScript? Would you like to learn Elm or Functional Programming in general, but short on time?

If you answered yes, then this course is for you. 

Elm is very approachable, and is the best language to learn functional programming.

Elm is a functional programming language that compiles to JavaScript and runs in the browser. It is designed to be fun and friendly to use. Indeed, Elm upends the notion that functional programming is only accessible to mad scientists and academics. With its clean and readable syntax, world-class tooling, and friendly compiler, Elm is truly a delightful language.

The Elm Architecture helps you create complex, modular web apps with code that stays easy to maintain as you add features. Toss in great performance, no runtime exceptions, and JavaScript interop, and you've got a su...

Elm is very approachable, and is the best language to learn functional programming.

Elm is a functional programming language that compiles to JavaScript and runs in the browser. It is designed to be fun and friendly to use. Indeed, Elm upends the notion that functional programming is only accessible to mad scientists and academics. With its clean and readable syntax, world-class tooling, and friendly compiler, Elm is truly a delightful language.

The Elm Architecture helps you create complex, modular web apps with code that stays easy to maintain as you add features. Toss in great performance, no runtime exceptions, and JavaScript interop, and you've got a super-charged way to produce reliable, scalable, and maintainable web apps!

But what we love most about Elm is that you can actually build practical stuff with it quickly, which is exactly what we do in this course.

Elm compiles to JavaScript, so trying out Elm is easy. Convert a small part of your app to Elm and embed it in JS. No full rewrites, no huge time investment.

Unlike hand-written JavaScript, Elm code does not produce runtime exceptions in practice. Instead, Elm uses type inference to detect problems during compilation and give friendly hints. This way problems never make it to your users. There are several examples where companies are running applications on thousands of lines of Elm, and even after more than a year in production, it still has not produced a single runtime exception anywhere.

Elm has its own virtual DOM implementation, designed for simplicity and speed. All values are immutable in Elm, and the benchmarks show that this helps us generate particularly fast JavaScript code.

As Elm compiles to JavaScript, you can really use it to build very complicated single page applications. Eventually it’s possible to interface with other JavaScript code when necessary.  With Elm, cost savings are enormous. Elm component architecture allows problems to be solved encapsulated. No more side-effects. No more pages and page scripts. No more untraceable bugs because of changing pages.

Why should you consider using Elm?

Elm offers many benefits over JavaScript, which you’ll see in this course.

Benefits such as:

- Zero Runtime Exceptions

- Simplified Debugging

- Easy Refactoring

- Helpful Type System & Compiler

- Improved Productivity

- Inherently testable code

- Enforced Semantic Versioning

- and many more...

Can we ask a favor? Lot of efforts have gone into creating this course, and new videos would be continuously added. We would be very grateful if you would help spread the word about this course. Thanks!
