Introduction to Web Programming in PureScript

A session at BOB 2017

  • Michael Karg

Friday 24th February, 2017

11:45am to 1:15pm (CET)

PureScript is a language for functional programming in the browser designed for low adoption barriers. It looks very much like somebody took static types and explicit effects out of Haskell and imposed them on javascript. And in fact, this is how Purescript was born.

In the short 90 minutes we have, I will cover the basics of PureScript for those who are not familiar with functional programming, and then walk you through a small web app with purescript-halogen, a UI library that adheres to the Functional Reactive Programming (FRP) design. I hope to have time to demonstrate how purescript comfortably integrates with any existing JavaScript context, which makes it a great tool for incremental adoption.
