 Roy

A principled tool for building large JavaScript applications

Brian McKenna


JavaScript is everywhere - but it's difficult to build large applications with. Part of the reason is weak typing and mutation.

Roy is designed to help with building large applications. It is a statically-typed, functional programming language that compiles to JavaScript. It takes ideas from Haskell, Scala and OCaml and brings them over to the JavaScript community. It features global type-inference, structural types, algebraic data types, pattern matching, monadic notation and very clean JavaScript output.

This talk will show off some of Roy's features and how they solve practical problems encountered with plain JavaScript.

 

BIO: 

Brian McKenna is a functional programming and language nerd. He's a huge fan of making software correctness easier by using types and automated specification-based tests. He's working on a program language for his day job and Roy as a hobby.
