9781617293023: Type-driven Development with Idris

Summary

Type-Driven Development with Idris, written by the creator of Idris, teaches you how to improve the performance and accuracy of your programs by taking advantage of a state-of-the-art type system. This book teaches you with Idris, a language designed to support type-driven development.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

Stop fighting type errors! Type-driven development is an approach to coding that embraces types as the foundation of your code - essentially as built-in documentation your compiler can use to check data relationships and other assumptions. With this approach, you can define specifications early in development and write code that's easy to maintain, test, and extend. Idris is a Haskell-like language with first-class, dependent types that's perfect for learning type-driven programming techniques you can apply in any codebase.

About the Book

Type-Driven Development with Idris teaches you how to improve the performance and accuracy of your code by taking advantage of a state-of-the-art type system. In this book, you'll learn type-driven development of real-world software, as well as how to handle side effects, interaction, state, and concurrency. By the end, you'll be able to develop robust and verified software in Idris and apply type-driven development methods to other languages.

What's Inside

  • Understanding dependent types
  • Types as first-class language constructs
  • Types as a guide to program construction
  • Expressing relationships between data

Book Description Manning Publications, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. DESCRIPTIONTypes are often seen as a tool for checking errors, with theprogrammer writing a complete program first and using the typechecker to detect errors. And while tests are used to show presence oferrors, they can only find errors that you explicitly test for. In typedrivendevelopment, types become your tools for constructingprograms and, used appropriately, can show the absence of errors. Andyou can express precise relationships between data, your assumptionsare explicit and checkable, and you can precisely state and verifyproperties. Type-driven development lets users write extensible code,create simple specifications very early in development, and easilycreate mock implementation for testing. Type-Driven Development with Idris, written by the creator of Idris,teaches programmers how to improve the performance and accuracy ofprograms by taking advantage of a state-of-the-art type system. Thisbook teaches readers using Idris, a language designed from the verybeginning to support type-driven development. Readers learn how tomanipulate types just like any other construct (numbers, strings, lists,etc.). This book teaches how to use type-driven development to buildreal-world software, as well as how to handle side-effects, state andconcurrency, and interoperating with existing systems. By the end ofthis book, readers will be able to develop robust and verified softwarein Idris and apply type-driven development methods to programmingin other languages.
