Talk Title: FEZ - fsharp type safety for the BEAM
Speaker: Karl Nilsson - Pivotal
Fez is an F# to core erlang compiler enabling users to compile F# code and run it on the Erlang runtime.
It works by generating core erlang from F# code which then can be compiled to Erlang bytecode. The aim is to bring a mature type-safe language to the BEAM. As someone who regularly has to refactor Erlang code - Karl misses his static types!
Karl's Talk will cover the following points:
- Introduce fez/motivation
- Brief demo/getting started
- What is core erlang?
- Design / Internals
- Challenges / Tradeoffs
- The future
