Haskell is a language known for its type safety, but just how far can the type system go? In this talk, Oliver will demonstrate how a publish/subscribe protocol implemented over Websockets has grown from using little type information and progressed to well-typed sessions through the use of singleton types.
We'll see how one can get a lot of the benefits of dependent types in Haskell today, and how tools often seen as purely theoretical have very practical applications.

Strongly Typed Publish/Subscribe over Websockets via Singleton Types
Oliver first discovered Haskell in late 2011, mostly curious as to what this radically different language was all about. After successfully type-checking his first program, he was hooked by the language's combination of succinctness and expressivity, and fascinated by the rich amount of theory and rigour behind the concepts.
