Miles Sabin and Edwin Brady exemplify what can be done with a language with dependent types, what are the limitations and what could be done in the future when dependent types reach maturity.
Miles Sabin does stuff with Scala for Precog. He does his utmost to break Scala's type checker with his project Shapeless and is a regular speaker at Scala and functional programming events. Edwin Brady is a Lecturer in CS at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, UK. His research interests there include programming language design, in particular type systems and domain specific languages.
