If you’ve ever wanted to learn Purescript, but didn’t want to learn it entirely on your own, then you and I have a lot in common!
I grew up as a professional programmer speaking Java. I think in objects and classes and polymorphism. I’m using this opportunity to learn Purescript not only to try out a different language, but also to practise thinking in functions and composition and higher-kinded types. If you’d like to practise this, too, then join us!
You do not need any prior functional programming experience. I don’t have much! I know just enough to be dangerous. Let’s be dangerous together and have fun along the way.
We’ll build something together, we’ll set up the toolset, we’ll discuss functional programming style, and we’ll probably write some tests. We’ll refactor when we can. We’ll certainly commit really frequently, at least until we gain some idea what we’re doing.
