Details

I spent the last few weeks using the soon-to-be released LinearTypes GHC extension in anger and I would like to share my experience with it. I am going to talk about why I am excited to see it in the wild, what it looks like, but also the annoying parts and limitations.

There are already many talks and articles on this extension [1]; so my aim for this one will be to focus more on the learning experience, ergonomics, and give you a feel of what it looks like and have a discussion after that.
