Gradualizer: the practical challenges of implementing a type checker

Type systems and gradual typing is beautiful and a type checker for Elixir that finds all type errors at compile time would be very useful. Putting the theory aside, Peter will explore the everyday difficulties of implementing such a type checker and testing it properly.

Objectives

After this talk attendees will value the many years of development and discipline that was put into Dialyzer and also see what added-value Gradualizer can bring.

Audience

Developers interested in type-checking.
