Keynote: Phoenix and Elm – Making the Web Functional
Panel Discussion: Designing With Passion

Evan Czaplicki
Creator of Elm


The panel discussion will focus on programming models and will be moderated by Bruce Tate. We'll start by asking each inventor about their approach when creating their languages:

·       How do you organize thoughts and code?

·       What unique advances in usability did your language make? 

·       Why do your users love to code in it?

This opening will lead to a Q&A discussion on what the language inventors got right and what they would do differently today if given the chance to start again. What decisions made the biggest impact on that solution? What are the consequences of those decisions? Don't miss this opportunity to learn directly from language creators!

Evan is a functional programmer at heart, and his broad goal is to provide the tools and learning resources to make functional languages common in industry. At NoRedInk, his focus is developing Elm’s compiler, tools, and community to make it a great for web programming, both within NoRedInk and in industry in general.
