Introduction to Purescript

27th April 2016 in London at CodeNode

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Functional Programming For the Web April Meetup

PureScript is a small strongly typed programming language that compiles to JavaScript. It's expressive type system and lightweight syntax allows to write very expressive code which is still clear and readable. The simple FFI that PureScript provides allows to easily interop with existing Javascript code, by providing types for its values and functions, that can be then used in regular PureScript code. In this talk we will first learn how to set up the development environment and then we will dive into an ocean of fuctions, recrods, pattern matching and extensible effects.
