Elm Weekly - Issue #111
The Effect pattern for organising your code, type-checking a mini-language with Elm, an optics package, Elm activity dashboard, and a game jam.
Articles and Discussion

Some great discussion in the post and replies. Also check out the link below for the introduction to the Effect pattern.
