    Types allow us to structure data to match the functional requirements of the problem we are trying to solve. But, in most languages, we end up choosing/building types that are the closest to our requirement. They don't exactly fit our bill, as a result of which, we write runtime code to enforce those conditions. Then we write tests because the compiler can't help us. Dependently Typed Languages like Idris allow us to encode a wide range of invariants into the type itself allowing us to possibly have zero runtime errors.

Sorry, no proposals found under this section.
