Meet up

Where No Type Has Gone Before

Thursday, 5th February in London

This meetup was organised by F#unctional Londoners Meetup Group in February 2015

Overview

Where No Type Has Gone Before

Throughout, you can expect to see some little known type provider "features" and tricks that were discovered along the way. Did you know that you can erase types to other erased types, and that it can actually be useful? What would happen if type systems can communicate with each other? Have you tried to use inheritance with type providers? Can type providers provide other type providers? Have you used type providers in type providers?

Type Providers are still a new frontier in programming languages, and we have yet to discover all that is possible with them. So don your part silly, part thoughtful hat, come on down to Skillsmatter and let's see what new ideas emerge!
