ReasonML for Skeptics

02.04.2020, 11:45-12:20

In this talk I want to explore ReasonML from a skeptic’s perspective.

This skeptic works in a team, on a mid-to-large size codebase. This skeptic does NOT work on a green-field project. This skeptic would have tried some other compile-to-JS languages like ClojureScript or Elm in the past. Maybe this skeptic even used one of these languages in a hack-day project.

I’d like to show the skeptic how intuitive ReasonML is to a seasoned JavaScript developer, and how it can be used to improve their team’s current JavaScript code base, immediately.

To do this I will demonstrate converting one component in an existing code base to use ReasonML, all without even changing the current build system.
