Stuart Halloway, David Nolen, Don Syme, John Hughes, Carl Franklin and Richard Campbell
The typing of programming languages tend to fall into the categories of static vs dynamic typing. What are the benefits of a type system - do we need them? Are the static type checkers only getting in your way - or saving your self from shooting your self in the foot. Are dynamic typing the road to meta-programming and productivity nirvana - or a slippery slope leading to unmaintainable code bases.
In this panel Stuart Halloway (Clojure), David Nolen (Clojure), Don Syme (F#/ML) and John Hughes (Haskell) will discuss the benefits of different type systems.
