Why listen to this podcast:
- Using a compiler to catch errors at compile time instead of at runtime means much easier refactoring of code.
- Elm packages are semantically versioned and gated by the publishing process, so minor versions cannot remove functionality without bumping the major version.
- The UI in an Elm application results in messages that transform the immutable state of the application; this allows a debugger to view the state transitions and the messages that triggered them, including record and replay of those messages.
- Elm has been benchmarked as being faster than Angular and React whilst being smaller code, which is attributed to the immutable state and pure functional elements.
