Abstract: The Simple Side of Haskell
Haskell has a (well-deserved) reputation for having a large, complex type system. However, there is tremendous power in using only Haskell's most basic features. In this talk we'll see how you can use simple types to ensure a password is cryptographically hashed, that an email is valid, or that a refactor is complete. No prior knowledge of Haskell is assumed!
