Type safety isn't just a feature of a language, it's also a programming style. While languages like Haskell make it easier to write type-safe code, to get the best results, you need to design your libraries to take advantage of its features. In this webcast presented Michael Snoyman, author of Developing Web Applications with Haskell and Yesod, will describe some techniques to exploit Haskell's strengths, and turn the compiler itself into another tool in your arsenal against bugs and security holes.
