Why types might be interesting: types, type classes and type level programming.

Very short notice I'm afraid, but let's try and get together this month anyway. Richard and Kingsley have suggested we talk about types, meaning not so much the helping hand the compiler gives you, more along the lines of how funky features are useful. Or are they? Are type classes the answer to everything? Haskell and Scala have the most prominent language level-support for type class-based programming, but it'd be very interesting to see how the same sort of things can be done in other languages.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
