I know I’m in a minority these days but I really just want new Macs. (And I don’t mean the iPhone Xs Max) The events are definitely a lot more filler than killer now.

My fears about the book being in bad shape were unfounded. PragProg don't have their usual forum up and running any more so they couldn't announce that there were updates, but seems like the author was on top of it, and released new chapters to the beta program last week. Now I can try 0.19 again!

It’ll be interesting to see what happens to the Programming Elm book from PragProg. It’s currently in beta, and while I wouldn’t say it is useless now, certainly many of the examples will be broken.

So today in side project , I decided I was going to get back to writing an Elm-based web app to wrap my Elixir-based API.

As I usually do, I updated Erlang, updated Elixir then updated . Well wasn’t that the big mistake.

Seems that Elm moves to 0.19 in late August and there were a few breaking changes. Got a lot of things working, but eventually gave up and reverted to 0.18 out of frustration and the realisation that there’s no good 0.19 examples out there yet.
