Your Instructor

Richard Feldman

Richard is a functional programmer who specializes in pushing the limits of browser-based UIs. He’s built seamless-immutable, a JavaScript immutables library that seamlessly interoperates with normal JS collections; elm-css, a CSS preprocessor where you write Elm instead of CSS; and Dreamwriter, a long-form writing Web App written in Elm which works like a desktop app in the absence of an Internet connection.

Spend the Day Immersed With a Leading Elm Master

Elm is a cutting-edge functional programming language that you can use either in place of JavaScript, or alongside it. Its amazing compiler catches errors before you even run your code—so effectively that Elm code has a reputation for never crashing.

Come join Richard Feldman and learn how to build Elm applications from zero to production-ready. Find out why people say that learning Elm changed the way they wrote code in other languages…for the better!

We’ll begin Day One with an overview of Elm’s benefits and syntax, then move on to building something with it. We'll write, refactor, and debug an Elm UI for searching GitHub repositories using their API. We'll end the day by interoperating with a JavaScript library.

Who this class is for?

This workshop is for you if you're comfortable with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. The material assumes no prior Elm knowledge, familiarity with any particular JavaScript frameworks, or any functional programming experience.


The workshop often uses JavaScript as a comparison point, to illustrate how concepts in Elm work differently than they do in JavaScript. There is no need to be a JavaScript master, but familiarity is important to be able to follow these comparisons; someone who has never built anything in JavaScript will be in for a challenge. Since the workshop assumes no functional programming knowledge, some of the material may feel like old hat to veteran functional programmers, but only a small part of it. Most of the workshop is focused on building things in Elm.

You'll Either LOVE This Workshop Or You Don't Pay. Period.

Our attendees are ecstatic by the high-quality, relevant content they receive at these workshops.

We cover everything in explicit detail (and the things we miss are covered by answers to YOUR questions) from basic to advanced tactics you can start working with the very same day. We don't want you to miss out on this opportunity because you've been to less-than-stellar workshops in the past. We promise you, ours are very unique.

That's why if you attend the workshop and aren't absolutely thrilled with the content… if you don't think it's worth the admission price… We refuse to accept your money. We will more than gladly issue you a full refund, so you risk nothing.

We're very specific about what you're getting here and have ran lots of workshops… so we've almost never have requests for refunds (99.8% satisfaction rate).

What Past Attendees Are Saying

"Superb presentation from a genuine domain expert. I learned a ton today."

Steve Jakubowski

"Keep up the good work. I've attended a lot of online workshops, and they are very shallow and unpractical. Most of the time, online people are treated as second class, but still paying citizens. Here we get all the content and get to participate as well (if only there was a way to get those cookies...)."

Adrian Murillo

"The class was great. It was really cool to get a bunch of links to example code to look at during the presentation and after the class."

Nate Yourchuck

"Good location and facility. Great technology for capture, presentation layout and video streaming. Really excellent being able to view the videos afterwards. It takes away the sense of having to absorb everything immediately or else lose it into the ether. It was fun. What more can you ask for?"

Laurence Bates

"Really well run...loved the communication pre-event. Very impressed with everything...this was my first online conference purchase, but I would definitely consider doing it again."

Jeff Sims

"I really enjoyed the online workshop experience. It is much better than just watching videos. I was able to participate in the conversations and benefit from other folks' questions."

Dana Greenberg

"You guys did a really great job! I cannot say enough good things about the experience."

Richard Ranke

"Everything was first class: excellent instructor, material, video, moderator, audio. Thank you!"
