In recent episodes we have discusses statically and dynamically typed languages and domain specific languages – topics that are much talked about in the community at the moment. In this episode we look at the foundation of programming languages : types. We explain what a type actually is, how type systems work and what polymorphism works.

  1. I’ve just discovered the podcast (thanks, Ehud Kaldor!) and am really enjoying it. So far this episode, to which I listened twice, is my favorite. The idea of exceptions as a checked type is really fascinating. I look forward to hearing the functional programming episodes. An episode about just-in-time compilers would be great to follow-on the fine “Internals of GCC” episode.
