HalosGhost will teach a class, "An Imperfect Introduction to Static Typing", on Thursday, 14 May 2015 at 21:30 UTC. It will tentatively be held in #archlinux-classroom. The class is expected to take about 1.5 hours.

Static typing is where the type of data a variable will hold is defined when the program is written, and that definition is enforced during the program's run. In this class learn the basics to start reasoning about functions written in statically typed languages and understand the differences between static typing and dynamic typing. The class is for beginners to static typing. There are no prerequisites.
