Thanks to its myriad of extensions, GHC's type system has come a long way in offering a powerful language for expressing complex programs at the type-level.
However, things could still be improved. Type-level programs are notoriously tricky to write, partly because the type language is first-order, meaning that our old friends like the maps and folds cannot be expressed.
In this talk, Csongor will walk through the type-level programming facilities of modern Haskell, and present a new GHC extension which enables higher-order type programming: UnsaturatedTypeFamilies.
This talk is based on the ICFP 2019 paper Higher-Order Type-Level Programming in Haskell and is aimed at people who are curious about how deep the rabbit hole goes if we do enable every possible language extension under the sun.
