András Kovács - A tour of GHC 8 features
Abstract: GHC 8 brought us a number of new features. This talk focuses on the changes to the type system (new kind system, explicit type applications, injective families) and presents some use cases and idioms that were impossible or unwieldy with previous GHC releases. We also touch on Strict Haskell, stack tracing, custom type errors, record field overloading, and their current usability.
