Hayleigh is an all-round functional programming nerd: she is community manager for Gleam, an active member of the Elm community, and developer of her own language called Ren. At work, she is an experienced frontend Web developer and Elm programmer. Hayleigh is currently completing her doctorate researching programming practice and language design in sound and music computing.
Gleam is a friendly statically typed language that runs on both the BEAM and in the browser. In this talk we’ll see a brief tour of the language, before taking a look at how it was used to build a fun interactive audio application. We’ll explore a typed Phoenix-like setup and demo a multi-user Web Audio app to show off.
