At G-Research, we make a lot of use of F# and we have various tricks to make the most of the language. One of the simplest and the most useful is an encoding of existential types that we call “crates”. This post introduces crates, provides some motivation and should put you in a position to recognise where they might be appropriate in your F# code base.
The Quant Platform team, part of software engineering, develops and maintains the software at the very core of G-Research’s business.
