Rumyana will give a (very) brief history of types and will discuss some (new and not that new) type systems, such as session types (types for distributed programs), refinement types (types with predicates). In this talk, she will challenge you to think how (and why) you can stretch the notion of types and make them accessible to the F# community. She will show you how to hack the F# compiler and use some typed goodies. In particular, she will talk about, Fluid Types, a project which aims to infer predicates from F# programs. She will discuss how far you should push the boundaries of the F# type system (if at all), and what are the trade-offs that we have to make.
