Tests vs Types: Fight!

Bio:
Colt Frederickson works on the Reporting and Insights team at Rubicon Project where he tries to crush Big Data down into useful data. When he’s not doing that he’s climbing, hiking, biking or otherwise taking advantage of living in Bozeman.

Abstract:
We all know that tests help us reduce how many nasty bugs we have in production, but why should we even care about types? They slow us down at development time and give us less flexibility. Should we just give them the boot altogether? Let’s explore what we get from tests and types and determine if they’re worth having around.
