Not me: How do I learn functional programming?
Me: Learn Elm.
I gave this answer several times in the past.
Except, it’s kinda shitty to tell somebody to learn another language to get better at TypeScript.
I know it works. I mean, you cannot do shit in Elm if you don’t know functional programming. And the language is the kindest environment to learn the static types chops.
But I keep wondering: can’t we find a better way to teach how to think in types without learning something else?

RDS Aurora is a popular SQL based Database Engine offered by AWS. DynamoDB is the competitor, a NoSQL database engine that enables limitless scaling potential with excellent performance.

(Riccardo: SQL vs NoSql in the AWS context.)
We imagined that there might be a better way to run a company, where the primary purpose was to provide a space for people to care for one another, and the actual work output was a crucial but secondary purpose. So we set out to create the company we would want to work for.
