In this technical talk, you will learn how the Elm programming language goes beyond its guarantee of no runtime exceptions and offers extreme technical safety. Elm libraries leverage its strong type system and unique architecture to model their domains expressively and guarantee that invalid states are impossible. You will learn how the Elm ecosystem creatively applies simplifying assumptions to make codebases more maintainable. Like the Style Elements library which eliminates the cascading part of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), ensuring that the only place a mysterious layout bug could be defined is on the element itself. Or the Graphqelm library which generates code that is aware of the server response's data types at compile-time. You will leave this session with a set of principles and techniques to bring the same safety to your internal API designs.
