How I learned to stop hating JavaScript, and love PureScript instead.

JavaScript and I have never been on the best of terms. Dynamic languages are challenging for me to adapt to, and even experienced JavaScript developers know that there are some things that can be improved. I thought JavaScript and I would stay estranged forever, but then someone introduced me to PureScript. PureScript is a statically typed language very similar to Haskell, but it compiles to JavaScript, and has excellent support for interfacing with the existing JavaScript ecosystem. Now I’m madly in love, and would like to share that love with everyone. 🙂
