028 - PureScript & Halogen - 08 May 2018



PureScript (http://www.purescript.org/) is a strongly-typed functional programming language that compiles to JavaScript. This talk will give a brief overview of the PureScript syntax and a few key features, demo the language tooling and showcase Halogen, one of its numerous UI libraries.

The talk assumes no prior knowledge of PureScript, although some familiarity with basic FP concepts (sum and product types, very basic Haskell syntax) is assumed.
