:-) Sweet. 20 years ago I was a CS undergrad and they made us learn ML. I 
did my final year project in Moscow ML (a compiler) and my masters project 
in OCaml (an AI pattern matching thing). I remember at the time saying "it 
will be 20 years before this stuff becomes mainstream". Well, I think ocaml 
and haskell have made some good progress in that time. I haven't touched it 
though for 20 years, so its taking a while to figure things out again.

One of the reasons I found it so hard to learn javascript is that I could 
not find a readable book on the subject. I definitely think the Elm docs 
need a lot of work because they leave a lot of gaps. Perhaps the upcoming 
"Elm in Action" book will be comprehensive in its coverage:
