Perl 6 allows you to add type constraints to variables, parameters and attributes. In this talk, I will look at:

* What are types, anyway
* What you can use as types in Perl 6
* How you can define your own refinement types, to do dependent-typing style stuff
* Type parameterization
* Where the Rakudo implementation is currently at (yes, we actually have some of this implemented)
* The roadmap for further implementation
