About The Book


Programming with Types teaches you to design safe, resilient, correct software that’s easy to maintain and understand by taking advantage of the power of strong type systems. Designed to provide practical, instantly useful techniques for working developers, this clearly written tutorial introduces you to using type systems to support everyday programming tasks.

About the technology

Common bugs often result from mismatched data types. By precisely naming and controlling which data are allowable in a calculation, a strong type system can eliminate whole classes of errors and ensure data integrity throughout an application. As a developer, skillfully using types in your everyday practice leads to better code and saves time tracking down tricky data-related errors.

Designed for working developers, this clearly written tutorial sticks with the practical benefits of type systems for everyday programming tasks. Following real-world examples coded in TypeScript, you’ll build your skills from primitive types up to more-advanced concepts like functors and monads.
