Thank you @evancz for building Elm. I have had a lot of fun using it ever since I discovered it.
Thank you for being all your excellent design work, and having a long-term vision for the language and sticking to it even when confronted with adversity and critique. Those design decisions are what made working on
elm-review so enjoyable, both for writing the tool and as Elm the analysis target.
I now breathe Elm in my spare-time, try to get in front of people talking about Elm, look for Elm jobs and get hired and paid for writing Elm. The impact you have had on my day-to-day life has been meaningful.
Thank you @rtfeldman for giving so many great talks on Elm and inspiring me and others to use it. Watching some of your talks were also a great way to prepare internal company pitches to use Elm (successfully too!). Also, thank you for pushing me a “bit” further with my work on
elm-review by telling me “the author is responsible for the user experience”. That sentence alone added 2 more months of work for the initial release, but the result has definitely been worth it. And that mantra is now ingrained in my OSS work.
Thank you @dillonkearns for all your time and great feedback on my work, and for wanting me to do podcasts and live streams with you. It’s an honor and a great deal of fun!
Thank you to the people who help beginners on Slack and help make Elm feel like a warm community. Many help out with that, but I’d like to give a specific shout-out to @jessta, @pd-andy and @joelq for being there so often, for the quality of the help you give and for your so hard-to-beat typing speed.
Thanks a lot to the people who work on the tooling, especially to @avh4 for
elm-format, @ilias for
elm-xref, @stil4m for
Elm Analyse and
elm-syntax, and @dmy for
elm-doc-preview. All of which are immensely useful and/or an inspiration for my projects.
Thank you all, and thanks to all the others I didn’t mention (I’ll blame the limit of 10 mentions) who make this community one I enjoy so much
