Teaching kids elm

Hi,

My kids want to start programming, and of course the first think they want to do is games :). They did play around until now with scratch until now.

I have this idea that functional programing is way better to learn initially and I know there are a couple of games out there written in elm.

I was wondering if you know any good resources to get them started with game development in elm?

Regards,

I’d try it with Evans package: elm-playground 1.0.3

As he states in the docs, there are some success stories that used this package in the past to help kids start with programming…

I like it, it shows promise, there is a lot of material online looks like from a course that happens offline from time to time, will take a closer look and see how far we get.

Thank you,
