Eta is a fork of GHC that focuses on three core principles: user experience, performance, and safety. We’ll discuss how we used these principles to guide the re-implementation of the GHC runtime and code generator on the JVM. Moreover, will also cover the inner workings of the FFI and the typechecker support we added for subtyping to make it smooth to interact with Java libraries. Finally, we’ll round out with a look at where Eta is headed and how Eta and GHC can collaborate in the future.
