Type systems, too many, too much?

Type systems are an invasive species. They accumulate features and get adopted by formerly “untyped" languages. What do they have to offer? What should they offer in the future? Join our dispute on the usefulness of type systems. Among others, we will discuss:

  • Why care about type systems?
  • What are some success stories of advanced type systems?
  • What is a big challenge of type systems?
  • Should type systems be optional?
  • Should advanced type systems be designed for experts or everyone?
