Elm: A frontend story that a backend dev can love featured image

I’ve been doing Web development for about 15 years now. The first few years were mostly tinkering with PHP and doing basic changes via the browser using Plone.  Very early into my career I co-founded Niteo. And got the first few clients.

It’s almost a year since we started working on a new project: WooCart.

I always had a vision for Niteo to grow into a factory of sane startups. A combination of internal spin-offs, an accelerator, and a VC fund.
