Bio

Evan Czaplicki has recently graduated from Harvard with a degree in Computer Science, and he’s taking a break before starting as a software engineer at Google. He is interested in making programming more accessible: easier to use and understand. His goals have been influenced both by a formal study of programming languages and practical experiences as an intern at Google and Microsoft.

About the conference

As new problems in computing arise, new languages are being created to help tackle those problems. We want to bring together programming language creators, researchers, and enthusiasts to share goals, experiences, and challenges. Our goal is advancing the state of the art in programming language design and implementation.

  • The Examples from Talk

    The live coding examples are a bit grainy, so I posted the examples here in the rough order that they appear in the talk.

    They are in the Elm's interactive editor, so you can follow along with the talk or just check them out and play around with them!

  • Very impressive

    Very impressive and ground breaking. But why another language? why not use haskell or clojure to build upon to produce javascript? something like clojurescript?

  • Reactive

    I think it should be "functional reactive programming" (FRP), not "functional reacting programming".
    But, then, I have nothing against introducing another term for the same thing :)
