2: Elm at NoRedInk with Richard Feldman and Aaron Strick

NoRedInk builds a web-based grammar and writing platform for English teachers, solving the problem of workbooks not being adaptive or personalized to the learner’s interests. Over the past few years their front end code has migrated from jQuery/Backbone to Angular to React with their newest code being written in Elm, a functional language that compiles to JavaScript.

In today’s episode, you’ll hear developers Richard Feldman and Aaron Strick discuss their experiences as early adopters of this exciting new language.
