Statically Typed

because Hindley-Milner rocks


The title of the blog comes from my penchant for statically typed languages.  I am of the camp that says the more meta information I have about an object, the less room for error I have in using that object.  The feedback at compile time is just one of those things which helps me create code fast.  However, just because I’m in love with static typing doesn’t mean I’m going to exclude discussions or code snippets from dynamically typed languages such as Python.  There is a place for everything and everything has a place.

I started this website for several reasons not the least of which was to force me to put some of my ideas down on paper and perhaps get feedback from others outside of my company/developer groups/circle of friends.  I know peer review has a profound impact on not only spreading new ideas but also improving them.  I’m hoping to learn from this endeavor as much as possible.

    It’s a shame your blog does not have a feed URL. I’d love to subscribe. Not by email, though.

    Let me introduce myself. My name is Patroklos Papapetrou ( ) and I recently started the project.

    My intention is to create a community with the best content about scala, functional programming, akka, play etc.
    I believe that your articles are really valuable so I invite you to take a look at our partner program ( and get in touch with me at ppapapetrou76 at gmail dot com, if you’re interested.
    Since the project it’s just takes its first baby steps I’d greatly appreciate your prompt reply.
