About this event

Note: This month we'll be at Porto I/O Downtown! # Agenda ## 19:00 Doors open Come and hang out while we struggle with our A/V setup. ## 19:25 Opening remarks Short introduction to the Porto Codes project. ## 19:30 An Introduction to Elm, by Décio Ferreira Elm is a functional language for reliable webapps, with a very strong emphasis on usability, performance, and robustness. Elm compiles to JavaScript, and is most well known for: - No runtime errors in practice. No null. No undefined is not a function. - Friendly error messages that help you add features more quickly. - Well-architected code that stays well-architected as your app grows. - Automatically enforced semantic versioning for all Elm packages. By the end of this talk I hope you will be able to create your own web application in Elm, understand how it compares with other projects like React as a tool for creating websites and web apps, but also understand the core ideas and patterns that make Elm nice to use. ## 20:30 Dinner and ice cream Join us for dinner, usually at Estambul Doner Kebap. Come rain or shine, we go for ice cream at Santini. # Porto Codes Porto Codes is a meetup for local and international programming enthusiasts. The talks are recorded and published with the presenters' consent as one of our goals is to provide programming resources to the community.
