Elm is a functional reactive language that compiles to something a web browser can understand. It forces a JS programmer to readjust their thinking, as there are no mutable variables and types are strong. All interaction is modeled through "signals", which are essentially streams of values changing over time. This is why Elm makes a perfect fit for learning FRP. In case you are the least bit curious, please take a look at the article I wrote: Learning FP the hard way: Experiences on the Elm language
Hats off to the Futurice Spice Program for making this learning experience possible!
