This lesson shows a super simple, yet pleasant, look at the smallest Elm example. We will use the text function from the Html module to display text in a browser.
This fist lessons poses far more questions than it asks. OK so setup is the following lesson, but I must say, watching this first lesson does not provide me with any insight whatsoever to this course, to ELM or related. What was the point, and how this sets up one for an ELM course, is beyond me. The Narrative is fast, confusing, and not at all useful at this point. In fact, it puts me off the rest of the course. Needs some revision, don't know why it was provided on Egghead in its current form.
I agree that episode 2 is a bit useless, but it is a great introduction for me. I also agree it is confusing to follow, and needs some work. Maybe an episode on syntax before using string concatenation and backward function application. I was going to disagree with you at first typing this because you sounded cynical, but it truly is not useful in the current state.
