About ReasonML

let message = () => "Welcome to Reason!";

Reason is a syntax and toolchain geared towards Javascript programmers, based on the functional language OCaml

Being statically typed, it is likely to be safer than Javascript, but has powerful type inference which means type annotations do not get in your way.

The Exercism exercises will compile directly to JS, but Reason can be compiled via the OCaml toolchain to native code, IoS, Android, and even microcontrollers

A tremendous learning opportunity to explore the depth of your own knowledge

Exercism is fantastic in learning new languages but that is not the extent of it. If you are a "more experienced" programmer you may have encountered impostor syndrome: the idea you don't really know what you think you know. Exercism lets you solve problems and put them in the space of open feedback which is a tremendous learning opportunity to explore the depth of your own knowledge. Even if you have been programming in a language for awhile it is worth checking into Exercism to see where you stand with current implementation practices.

Relaxed. Encouraging. Supportive.
