Algebraic effects were originally introduced to study the semantics of computational effects. With the addition of handlers they have become an exciting new programming construct for implementing such effects.

In this talk, I’ll describe ongoing work to design and implement support for algebraic effects in the OCaml programming language, including tracking these effects in the type system. I’ll focus on two interesting aspects of the design for such a system:

- How should effectful operations be matched to effect handlers?
- How do we implement type inference for an effect system in a language like OCaml?
