The Road to a Statically Typed Future

In this talk, you will learn about the basics of ReasonML, a OCaml-based language with a more familiar syntax for JavaScript developers specifically targeted to React developers.

You will see how Reason’s type system will help you write terser, more functional and more runtime-safe code and how you can leverage this language to write strongly typed React applications.

We will discover the Reason ecosystem, specific syntactical differences to JavaScript and up- and downsides of this technology while doing live-coding examples. This is going to be a highly interactive “look-and-feel” experience in Reason with some insights in my development workflow.
