Datatype generic programming refers to an assortment of techniques, libraries and language extensions used for defining programs that are parameterized by datatypes, or rather by shapes of datatypes. In this talk, you will explore TypeShape, a small library for generic programming with emphasis on practical application and extensibility. TypeShape takes advantage of F# active patterns and object expressions to concisely define extensive, generic programs. It is already being used in real-world libraries such as FsPickler and FSharp.AWS.DynamoDB.
