[Haskell-cafe] hiring PureScript coder

Hi Michael,

Here's my reasoning. Note that I'm not an expert on any of this.

I'm choosing Purescript over Elm (or Reflex) because it has been described
to me as a fuller implementation of functional programming, in particular
Elm lacks type classes.

I'm choosing React because I've been told by several people it's the best
way to create a Javascript application that can be packaged for mobile or
i.e. a self-contained app.

I don't have many more reasons than that.
