Finally found the time to write some more Elm... JSON parsing, effects and signals, the joy just grows :)

I had the idea to use the RSS elm feed to do something meta, but no luck yet with the XML, will need to write something that converts the xml to json. Getting used to the compile errors.

Ah wow. The waiting list is growing as well :worried:

@suvash yeah, i know, i feel kinda bad about not being able to provide more spots…
btw, do you have an approximate for how long your talk will be @suvash ?

Let's try to record the session like we did for the dependent types one, so we can at least those that couldn't attend the chance to see a recorded version

good idea

since it's supposed to be an intro, can be stretched a bit, but I'm targeting an hour and maybe a bit more, will try and wrap in 1:30. Then we have more time to try out things.

btw, since you and @magthe are actively trying it out now, you should tell me about things I should not miss.
@Jell yeah. no pressure at all. :sweat_smile:
Gabriella
@rippedspine
Nov 29 2015 14:47
sure! as a start, you should really look into Signals
and the elm architecture
both of which me and @magthe are planning workshop tasks for

great then.
btw, is the workshop supposed to be afterwards right away or some other day ?
if it's right away, i won't bother with demos too much ?
Gabriella

right afterwards your talk, maybe calling it a workshop is a bit of a stretch, more like trying out the language together
i think some interesting demos would be nice

great then. if you let me know what you planning, i can probably prepare around that idea as well.

but, i havent been at a meetup iwth workshop before so i dont really know how to go about those
yes, will do
Suvash Thapaliya
@suvash
Nov 29 2015 14:53
it's probably going to be a bit ad hoc(ping @Jell ) i guess, people normally form their own groups and try out something.
Gabriella
@rippedspine
Nov 29 2015 14:54
ok, thats good to know. my idea was just to provide some examples to hack at for people to start with if they dont come up with anything themselves

will start with slides this week. my train of thought : less time on syntax and code, more on the bigger* ideas of Elm.

@Jell do you remember the tools that they used in the Rust workshop at ICFP2014? Do you remember any names of the tools?
Jean-Louis Giordano
@Jell
Nov 29 2015 22:10
@magthe I didn't go to the Rust workshop at ICFP but I remember you talking about it
I remember you could share your code with a shortened url?
was it that one? https://play.rust-lang.org/

Ah, no you didn't... that's right. Nope, it was a general tool for communication and sharing code and stuff.
