An Intro to Elm

We’re so excited to finally bring you this event. The weather did not cooperate last month so we’re going to try it again.

Our friend Andrew Schutt from the Hy-Vee software engineering team will give us an intro to Elm. We’ll also get a quick intro to Spark from Emma Croskrey, brand designer at Performance Marketing. And, because it’s new and trendy, we’ll also have an intro to block chain from Torrey Johnson, software engineer at Shift Interactive

Join us on Monday, March 11th at 6:30 pm at The Forge in Downtown Des Moines across from the sculpture garden. Bring your laptops, brains, appetites and friends.

This event will lean more toward an instructional event. So, even though there will be some coding, the most we’ll ask of you is to just soak up some knowledge.
