Expanding competence

I have been working with Elm regularly since about 0.13, so I'm fairly
competent up to and including JSON, Cmd, Sub, JS interop and topics like
that. I have built some fairly detailed apps with those technologies
included. I focus on educational software.

What are the minimum extra skills I need to learn to create true multi-user
apps, with log-in forms, authentication, and personalised student learning
records?

Does this require a considerable leap in what I have to know, or are there
relatively painless ways of getting to this next level?

Thanks in advance.

Hi David,

I think you already know everything you need to know.
Just attempt to do it and if you get into trouble the community will assist
you.

For a multi-user app you also need a backend and since Elm does not have an
official backend story, you will need to switch to another language.
I highly recommend the RealWorld/Conduit project.
https://github.com/gothinkster/realworld

You have there examples from a lot of languages for both the backend and
the frontend.
The Elm frontend example is the best guide for implementing a full SPA in
Elm.

Many thanks for that recommendation.

Yes, it is the back-end part that I was concerned about.

Try this, makes it easy to get started with Elm on AWS, and it can run
locally too:
