Discussion on: Why are you learning Elm?

They're similar in the sense that TypeScript and Elm are both programming languages. But different in the features they emphasize. They make and value very different tradeoffs. And so depending on the tradeoffs that make sense for your projects you'd choose one over the other.

React/Angular frontends can be built entirely with Elm and the Elm architecture. With TypeScript you'd still be using React/Angular except you'd be writing it with TypeScript.

Alright I'm in.

The Elm Architecture looks really cool.
