As we seem to be having an eternal N+1 conversation about this…
The question I have been asking myself about Elm recently is “How can Elm be de-risked?”.
I would like to compile a list of things that are considered to be risks that organisations face when adopting Elm or not. I would also like to keep this conversation focussed entirely on that, without going off on tangents, so please try to contribute in the manner that I am asking for. I will post up the first example to give you the idea of how I would like to proceed.
The idea is to have a bit of a brainstorming session on this forum, to capture all the problems that we encounter when trying to promote Elm to our peers at work, or to recommend it to strangers on the internet. The aim is to find and focus on the risks, both real and perceived. I am happy to run this process and will proceed in 3 stages.
- On this topic, collect a list of risks (and not opinions). This topic should remain open until its 10-day auto close timer kicks in, which should be plenty time to consider everything.
- De-duplicatte that list by merging things that are similar enough into single items. Potentially filter out anything that is irrelevant (but even small stuff should stay in).
- Solicit feedback from the community on the risks - how severe are they (say on a score of 1-5), what can be done about them, and how much work would those solutions involve (also maybe give a score). Maybe some kind of survey tool will work for this part.
The end result should be a fairly comprehensive list of the risks, and can be sorted by severity/effort to give an idea of where effort can be best spent to solve these issues.
