The overall problem is even ordering
I meant "event" ordering
i see its value in other environments
again, I am always talking in the context of "Front-End", I don't dispute the fact that functional programming and immutability have value, but I can safely say (and based on the kinds of issues React, Cycle, ... struggle with) that they are critically missing "State".
State machines can be described and manipulated with ordinary, everyday mathematics—
that is, with sets, functions, and simple logic.
State machines therefore provide a uniform way to describe computation with simple mathematics.
lead with the right foot, state-machine first then the functional-programming
yes absolutely, it's not about saying FP or FRP has not value, that would be nonsense.
