It’s not so easy to keep up with what’s going on in the Elm world these days. On one hand, as the language becomes more popular, the volume of posts on Discourse and the traffic on Slack is going up. On the other hand, I’m still often surprised to run into an interesting article or a useful package that slipped under the radar.
However, recently the owner of the Elm Weekly newsletter, which was active in 2015-2016, decided to transfer it to somebody else. Brian Hicks and I took over it.
Brian is the organiser of elm-conf in the US, author of The JSON Survival Kit (check it out if you’re having trouble with JSON decoders), and the purveyor of the State of Elm survey.
We published the first issue of 2018 this week. Check out this week’s issue and subscribe.
Our goal for each week is to include 2-3 good articles or talks, a couple of interesting packages, and link to Elm jobs (although they may not appear every week).
I hope we can highlight the most interesting and relevant content for you in Elm Weekly.
My book, Practical Elm for a Busy Developer, skips the basics and gets right into explaining how to do practical stuff. Things like building out the UI, communicating with servers, parsing JSON, structuring the application as it grows, testing, and so on. No handholding — the focus is on giving you more substance.
It’s up to date with Elm 0.19.
