This talk shows an alternative design for future-like continuations that doesn't require any dynamic allocation or type-erasure, while still enabling users to build chains of parallel computations with intuitive constructs such as `.then(...)` and `when_all(...)`.
The idea is to encode every step of the computation chain in the type of a final object, resulting in a very long type that represent the whole tree.
