Type-inference reduces the need for programmers to annotate programs with types, but can lead to poor quality type-error messages. I will explain how compilers can implement formal type-systems, how type-error messages are produced and evaluate the usefulness of different approaches. I will describe the theory and implementation behind my Part II project, TELE (Type-Error Location Extension), which produces high quality type-error messages for OCaml.
